This gallery focuses on Gyeongbokgung Palace
Gyeongbokgung Palace, built in 1395, is the largest of the Five Grand Palaces built by the Joseon dynasty. It was destroyed by fire during the 1590s and abandoned for two centuries. In the latter half of the 19th century, all of the palace's 7,700 rooms were restored. In the early 20th century, much of the palace was systematically destroyed by Imperial Japan, which annexed Korea in 1910. Restoration of the Palace began in 1990.
