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.
