Snapshot Sunday: Bridge to the Hyangwonjeong Pavilion

Hyangwonjeong Pavilion
The 'Pavilion of Far-Reaching Fragrance' at Gyeongbokgung Palace - Seoul

First constructed in 1395, the Gyeongbokgung Palace in Seoul was destroyed by the Japanese then reconstructed in 1867. The pesky Japanese tore it down again in the early twentieth century, and the new palace complex was completed in 2009. In the palace grounds you can stroll around the Hyangwonjeong Pavilion, a delicate hexagonal structure surrounded by calm water and lily pads.
