Century-old stone palace reborn as historical museum

By in posted Oct Comments off

One hundred and seventeen years ago, King Gojong (r. 1863-1907) of Joseon rechristened the nation as the Daehan Empire in 1897 and ruled as an emperor until the end of his reign. The king, then emperor, built a Western-style stone palace, the Seokjojeon, inside the Deoksugung Palace grounds, from which he ruled the empire. The building was designed in 1898 by John Reginald Harding (1858-1921), a British architect. Construction began in 1900 and continued for 10 years. The building was originally built for residential purposes and had a reception room, bedrooms, living rooms and bathrooms. However, it was mostly used as a banquet hall. It was also used as a residence for the last crown prince of Korea, King Yeongchin (1897-1970), the seventh son of Gojong.
