Autumn in Deoksugung Palace, Seoul

Autumn has gone but memories of our trip to South Korea still linger.DSCF3455

When we reached the Deoksugung palace in Seoul, there was a changing of the guards. Although it was not as spectacular as the changing of the guards at the Tower of London, nevertheless, it attracted  big crowds of spectators.DSCF3469

Deoksugung is a walled compound of palaces in Seoul that was inhabited by  royalties  around the turn of the 20th century.DSCF3471

The buildings are of varying construction, including some of natural crytomeria wood, painted wood, and stucco.DSCF3470

The palace buildings are impressive. We have a good look around the area.DSCF3485

Autumn was in the air; trees were changing their color.DSCF3458

There was a spectrum of colors in the fall foliage; from green, yellow, gold and even red.DSCF3459

Beautiful views were every where. The fall foliage looked particularly colorful when viewed against the palace walls.DSCF3490

While many of the foliage were gold or still green, some have already changed to red.DSCF3477

We have a delightful stroll within the palace; passing by a pond, before finishing off our walk.DSCF3487

Understand that there are five palaces in Seoul. I did not have the opportunity to visit the other four palaces, but I must say I thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and the colors of Autumn at Deoksugung!

  1. The exterior of the palace looks a lot like that of a beautiful temple that was very near where I used to live, in Tacoma, Washington state, USA. I was always so happy to see its unexpected beauty as I went past it!
