Joseon princes’ quarters

Posted July. 13, 2013 01:53,   


The cornerstones of Jaseondang, the residence of crown princes of Joseon Dynasty, returned to Korea in 1995 after being moved to Japan during the colonial era but has since been left unattended at a northern corner of the Gyeongbok Palace in central Seoul. Access to them was restricted by the Presidential Security Service until November 2012, when the site was permanently opened to the public. However, few people have visited the site as it was not widely known to the public.
