Changdeokgung Palace in Seoul was the palace of the Yi Dynasty, which lasted for 600 years. It was originally built as a detached palace from the nearby Gyeongbokgung Palace, but when the main palace, Gyeongbokgung, was destroyed by fire, it was used as the main palace until the late 19th century. It is now designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The large gate in the foreground of the photo is Injeongmun Gate. Beyond the gate, you can see the Injeongjeon Hall. Injeongjeon Hall is the place where the king used to hold political affairs when this was the main palace, in other words, it was the center of politics. In the past, there must have been a lot of conflicting thoughts here, but now there were no thoughts floating around. The air was completely calm.
