Built in 1405 by King Taejong, Changdok is the best preserved of all of Seoul's palaces. It has its own unique architectural beauty and is divided into four main components: Central Palace, Piwon (known as the secret garden), Naksonjae, and Sonwonjon Hall. The beautiful surroundings, including a pond in harmony with the old palace buildings, provide a serene and cozy atmosphere for all to enjoy.
Not much different than the first palace except for its 'Secret Garden'. I am sure that this garden is lovely but between the frozen ponds, barren trees and lack of all color except for brown and white, it was somewhat hard to imagine.
Hope to see yourself..
If it's one place that you should go to its this palace. Take your time, and take the tour. The entire tour is about 1.5 hours, but well worth it. You'll learn a lot, see many of the areas that you would overlook. Make sure to go to the secret garden. It's really beautiful.
