Changgyeonggung Palace was first built by the 4th ruler of Joseon Dynasty, King Sejong for this retiring father, King Taejong. It often served as residential quarters for queens and concubines.
During the reign of King Seongjong, 9th ruler of Joseon Dynasty, the palace was renovated and renamed to Changgyeonggung Palace.
Compared to other palaces, Changgyeonggung Palace is simple and compact.
The palace is surrounded by a forest with about 50,000 trees including Japanese apricot, zelkova, maples, cherry and peach trees.
