Changdeok Palace - Injeongjeon Palace

Injeongjeon Palace was a large building with two sets of Ranking Stones in front and was reached by walking through a specific gate - which can be seen in the photograph above.

"Injeongjeon Palace is also known as the Throne Room which was used for holding the most formal of state events such as audiences with ministers, coronation ceremonies and receptions of foreign envoys.  This hall may be smaller than it's Gyeongbok Palace counterpart but it is suitably dignified for it's function."
Text from their brochure

There is only one room inside, despite it looking like there are two floors, and there is the throne room inside which I would imagine would have looked stunning originally. I have to admit that the ceiling needs a little clean - but a wonderful place to visit.

On returning to Thailand I did find a website which allows you to investigate Cangdeok Palace and have a 360 degree view - here it is below.
