The guards, uniforms, weapons and accessories as well as their strict ceremonial procedures catch the eyes of people especially foreign tourists when guardsmen perform the changing of guards in traditional costumes at the main gate of Gyeongbokgung Palace in downtown Seoul. Be sure to bring a camera to take lots of pictures.
Gyeongbokgung, or the Palace of Felicitous Blessing, was the main palace of the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910) and it opened in 1395, the fourth year of the reign of King Taejo, the founding monarch of Joseon.
The palace attained all necessary facilities and systems commensurate with its status as Joseon's primary palace during the reign of King Sejong. It was burnt down in 1592 during the Japanese invasions and remained in ruins until extensive reconstruction was undertaken in 1868. However, many of the structures were removed during the Japanese colonial rule (1908-1945).
The Cultural Heritage Administration has been restoring the palace since 1990. First of all, the old Japanese government-general building was dismantled and Heungnyemun and its cloisters were reconstructed. The bedchambers of the king and the queen, named Gangnyeongjeon and Gyotaejeon, as well as Donggung, or the East Palace, the residence of crown prince, were restored. Currently, Gwanghwamun, the palace's main gate, is being rebuilt. Thus, the palace is regaining its old splendor.
