In Seoul, Korea, five major palaces from the Joseon Dynasty remain, and a large number of tourists visit each year. Among them, Changdeokgung Palace is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its beauty.

Changdeokgung Palace was a separate palace built after Gyeongbokgung Palace in 1405. It was also called "Donggung" because it was located in the east direction of Gyeongbokgung Palace, the main palace.

Geumcheongyo Bridge was built (1411) and Donhwamun Gate was built (1412), and since the 9th reign of King Seongjong of the Joseon Dynasty, various kings have lived here and served as palaces. During the Japanese Invasion of Korea in 1592, Changdeokgung Palace is burned down. When King Seonjo, who was the king at that time, fled to Uiju, the angry people set fire to the palace.

The palace, which was rebuilt by Gwanghae-gun in 1611, is well harmonized with nature and artificiality, and is visited by many tourists, and there are many cultural assets such as Injeongjeon, Daejojeon, Seonjeongjeon, and Nakseonjae.

Changdeokgung Palace was registered as a World Heritage Site along with Hwaseong Fortress in Suwon at the UNESCO World Heritage Committee in Naples, Italy, in December 1997.Changdeokgung Palace Garden was created during the reign of King Taejong and was a place where the royal family, including the king, rested.

The garden of Changdeokgung Palace was also called Bukwon and Geumwon, and it was called a secret garden after King Gojong. It is Korea's best garden with people's hands only in essential places, keeping its natural appearance in low hills and valleys.

There are numerous pavilions and springs, including Buyongjeong and Buyongji, Juhapru and Eosumun, Yeonghwadang, Bulomun, Aeryeonjeong, and Yeongyeongdang. Especially, it is said that autumn leaves and fall leaves are the most beautiful.
