Gyeongbokgung Palace is the largest palace in South Korea with the most magnificent architectural design. It was designated as historical site No. 117 in 1963. Gyeongbokgung Palace was built in 1394 and suffered large-scale damage during the Imjin Japanese Rebellion and the transfer of political power. Thanks to the efforts of the Korean government to maintain history and culture, Gyeongbokgung Palace has been restored to its basic original appearance and opened to the public. Visit with tourists. Most of the palaces of Gyeongbokgung Palace are central axis buildings, extending from Gwanghwamun, Heungyeemun, Geunjeongmun, Sijeongjeon, and Jiaotaijeon. The bricks and tiles in the palace are carved out. Traces of the times.

When you come to Gyeongbokgung Palace, you can’t miss the goalkeeper handover ceremony. The goalkeeper will be handed over twice a day at 10 am and 2 pm. The ceremony takes about 20 minutes each time.
