It's kind of restored house. It's good to see by itself but I felt I watched not real thing like replica. There's a zelkova tree which is six hundred years old and people put a note written their wishes on the fence.

This is a small shrine. Around the fortress, or outside i should say. Closes around 5 pm. Looks really nice from up the hill

Nicely restored palace. Many of the rooms have been staged to demonstrate their function in the past. Fairly large complex, we were with a guide, so all the history really helped the tour.

Got interested to visit this place because first, it's the place where Dae Janggeum or Jewel in the Palace was filmed (kitchen scene). Second, it's a UNESCO as a world cultural heritage site. I guess those 2 reasons are good enough for us to go...More
