ChoSun Palace, Seoul

19 Oct

One of the most remarkable things about Seoul, Korea is that it is one of the fastest, yet one of the most well developed cities in the world. It is an incredible dichotomy to experience where ancient meets modern, East meets West. In the midst of high-rises, there are fascinating, beautiful architecture from its ancient past dwelling side by side like kindred spirits. These photos show parts of the Royal Palace of the great ChoSun Dynasty, from thousands of years ago (not just hundreds). The palace is so well preserved that all the details, carvings and hand applied color are so vibrantly present. Truly spectacular experience to witness this marvelous ancient architecture & design.
