My travels have taught me not to live for the sparkle, to welcome it yes, but not to wait for it. The magic happens in the middle space where mundane and serendipity collide. There you find the beauty of a life lived in the present, fully aware of its surroundings. That right there is the sparkle.✨ Everything else was only meant to be the backdrop.
📍Gyeongbokgung Palace. January 31, 2019. •••
Gyeongbokgung was established in 1395 as the main palace,the principal one of all the royal palaces built for the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910). It’s located between Baegaksan Mountain in the north and Yukjogeori in the south which, as it was placed just outside the palace’s main gate, Gwanghwamun, became the center of the dynasty’s politics and economy. The name of the palace, Gyeong-Bok (literally meaning “briliance and fortune”), given by Jeong Do-jeon (1342-1398). •••
Gyeongbokgung Palace has 12 places that tourists are allowed to visit. In this picture, it’s called Geunjeongjeon Hall. As it’s name Geun-Jeong (literally means “diligent governance”). Geunjeongjeon was the throne hall of Gyeongbokgung in which each Joseon ruler and his government were expected to handle state affairs in a dilligent manner. Built to symbolize the sovereignty of Joseon’s rules, the hall boasts the most sumptuous and stately appearance among all the structure of the palace. It was built in 1867 to replace the original one,which is burnt down during the Japanese Invansion in 1592. ••• #gyeongbokgung#gyeongbokgungpalace#gwanghwamun#geunjeongjeon#geunjeongjeonhall#jongno#jongnogu#seoul#southkorea#daehanmingukmanse#hanguk#vsco#unfold#blessed#nisaagainsttheworld#lfl#f4f#photography#photooftheday#palace#history#january#2019#imagineyourkorea#visitkorea
