Built in 1395 in the city of Seoul, Gyeongbokgung Palace is the largest of the original Five Grand Palaces built by the Joseon Dynasty. It was the main palace of the Joseon dynasty until it was destroyed by fire, but it was completely restored in the 19th century under King Gojong. The palace is the northernmost of the group of palaces, hence its nickname, "The Northern Palace." It is composed of several palace buildings including Geunjeongjeon, an intricate imperial throne; Gyeonghoeru, an elaborately designed royal banquet hall; and Hyangwonjeong, a peaceful pavilion along the lake. The Gyeonghoeru Pavilion and Hyangwonjeong Pond remain intact, and they are wonderful examples of Joseon design. The palace is noted as the most beautiful of the five palaces, and its complex is also home to the National Palace Museum of Korea and the National Folk Museum.
