Changgyeonggung Palace will be open at night all year round from 2019

Starting next year, Changgyeonggung Palace will be open at night all year round.

The Cultural Heritage Administration announced on Thursday that it will conduct a night open at Changgyeong Palace from January 1 next year in line with the increase in the leisure time of the people following the implementation of the 52 hour-work a week system.


Changgyeonggung Palace

Located in the heart of Seoul, Changgyeonggung Palace was originally built as Suganggung Palace by the 4th ruler of the Joseon Dynasty, King Sejong (r.1418-1450), for his retiring father, King Taejong. It often served as residential quarters for queens and concubines. During the reign of King Seongjong (r.1469-1494), the palace was renovated and renamed to Changgyeonggung Palace. It later became a park with a zoo and a botanical garden during Japanese colonial rule. The palace grounds remained this way until 1983 when restoration of its old grace was completed. 

The Cultural Heritage Administration had temporarily opened Changgyeonggung Palace at night in the form of special observation so far.
