A pleasant place to wander around and enjoy traditional Korean architecture. The Portrait museum was small but interesting.

The First King of Shoseon dinasty. A small shrine and it has a painting of King Taejong. You have to pay for enter.

You can see a lot of it from the inside so can consider saving the 3000 won to go in. There’s some history about why it’s famous but it is not a palace or anything similar. From the Chosun period.
