Changdeok Palace - The Secret Garden

"The Secret Garden is a huge tract of land within the walls of the Palace. 
This was the space for the King to contemplate and learn."
(text from john80)

We did not have time to visit this area of land but after viewing the videos available it may well have been something that we  should have visited.

Changdeokgung Palace - painted patterns

From once being a Primary School Teacher in the United Kingdom i am swiftly aware of the patterns that we see around us.  Here is a little different because they are painted so beautifully and (as indicated previously) so beautifully maintained.

Changgyeong Palace - no birds?

The palace is a beautiful piece of architecture and the gardens match - beautiful.

But there are no birds - is this their only protection?
