KOREA : Visiting Palace - GYEONGBOKGUNG

Satu lagi palace yang perlu di lawat tidak jauh dari palace pertama. Lebih kurang 15 min berjalan kaki atau naik train ke Gyeongbokgung Station, Exit 5, subway line 3. Sebelum sampai ke 2nd palace kita ada melewati monumen.




Kebetulan sampai di palace, ada guard di luar. Kali ini pakaian dan karakter yang berbeza. Masuk perlu bayar entry fee KRW3,000.


Menariknya di palace ini, lebih kepada suasana nature gitu. Luasnya jangan di tanya. Letih juga berjalan. Ia di bina pada tahun 1935. Di sini ada 13 zon yang boleh di singgah ikut kaki masing-masing.  Kami singgah-singgah tgk architecture je. Dah tak larat nak bergambar bagai. Dalam kawasan ini ada convenience store dan souvenir shop. Best juga baca sejarah setiap bangunan dan kawasan yang di bina. Imagine masa zaman dahulu kala, hulubalang atau pekerja istana berjalan dalam kawasan ini. 

1- Gwanghwamun Gate and the Palace Wall
Four gates tell of the dynasty's glory (Gwanghwamun, Yongseongmun, Heungnyemun, Hyeopsaengmun)


2- Geunjeongjeon and Vicinity
Main throne hall of the palace. The name means 'all affairs will be properly managed if Your Majesty demonstrate diligence'.



3- Donggung and Vicinity
Residence of the crown prince. The crown prince was regarded as a rising sun, which is why his living quarters were built to the east of the king's palace.



4- Hyangwonjeong and Geoncheonggung
King Gojong's palace within a palace. In the rear garden of the concubines' quarters is a square pond named Hyangwonji, in the center of which lies an islet.



5- Gyeonghoeru Pavillion
The apex of architectural beuaty. It was where the king threw formal banquets for foreign envoys. The king and his party went up to Gyeonghoeru to enjoy a sweeping view of the palace and Mount Inwangsan.



Part ini sahaja yang sempat di rakamkan. Selebihnya memang menarik. Kalau datang musim autumn ke mesti lagi cantik pemandangan dalam kawasan ini. Di tambah dengan pemandangan Gunung Inwangsan. 

Lain-lain area.
a- Sajeongjeon and Vicinity -Where the king managed routine state affairs.
b- Gangnyeongjeon and Gyotaejeon - A glimpse into everyday life in the royal household.
c- Heumgyeonggak and Hamwonjeon - Buildings near the Inner Court served the needs of the royal household.
d- Jangyeongjeon and Vicinity - Queen dowager's residence.
e- Hamhwadang and Jipgyeongdang - Residence for concubines and court ladies.
f- Jibokjae and Vicinity - Harmony of Qing Chinese and traditional Korean styles.
g- Taewonjeon and Vicinity - King Gojong strives to secure legitimacy for his rule.

Last sekali dekat pintu keluar ada National/Folk Musuem. Berminat boleh lah masuk.


Simpan tenaga untuk cari next place pulak....
