Before I finish up with my posts of the grandest palace, I thought I will share a few more photos from my night at Gyeongbokgung Palace in Seoul. As you can see, it is well worth a visit at night just to see the night time colours and highlights of the palace. The photos below are just of the main Throne Hall or Geunjeongjeon.
