Unhyeongung Palace Tips (3)

Unhyeongung (운현궁) Palace *

The small Unhyeongung (운현궁) palace is located just south of Anguk Station. Unhyeongung is famous as the birthplace of King Gojong, and the residence of his father, Prince Regent Daewon-gun. One of the major areas in the palace is Norak-dang hall where King Gojong and Queen Min were married.

Prince Regent Daewon-gun's descendants owned the palace until it was sold to the Seoul government in 1993. It took three years to restore the palace, but it is smaller than the original as Duksung Women's University occupies part of the grounds. Some of the buildings now have mannequins dressed in various styles from Korean history.

During my last visit to this palace, I watched traditional Korean dancers on a stage near the front entrance.

Entrance fee used to be around 500 or 1,000 Won, but it is free as of 2014,
