South Korea: Changdeokgung Palace

On 9th March I got five postcards: three from South Korea and two from Finland.

One of the cards from South Korea shows the Throne Hall of the Changdeokgung Palace. The Changdeokgung Palace was built in the 15th century by King Taejong and is one of the Five Grand Palaces of the Joseon kings. From 1910 to 1945 it was heavily damaged by the Japanese occupiers. Since 1997 is the Changdeokgung Palace Complex on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
