    Changgyeonggung Palace was a palace built to accommodate the queen mother in 1483. Connected to Changdeokgung Palace, it created a single palace, the Dongwol (Eastern Palace), while also being an independent palace, supplementing the lack of residential space in Changdeokgung Palace. In the back garden of Changgyeonggung Palace is Korea’s first Western-style greenhouse home to wild Korean plants, and the palace is filled with willow trees planted for the protection of the royal family’s privacy that also present an atmosphere of grace. The night hours will offer visitors the experience of carrying cheongsachorong (traditional Korean lanterns) and walk through the palace at night.

    Night Hours of Operation: Open at all times until 21:00 (Closed Mondays)
