Changdeokgung palace was built by Lee bang-won in Chosun dynasty. It was a secondary palace when they couldn’t use the main palace, Gyeongbokgung Palace during wartime.

One of the reason why Changdeokgung is loved by Koreans is its harmony with nature.  Meanwhile Gyeongbokgung has dignity and orderliness, Changdeokgung has natural beauty.

The palace was listed in UNESCO’s Memory of the World Register in 1997.
