Geunjeonjeon Throne Room

It is in the Geunjeongjeon throne hall that the kingdom's state affairs took place, including meetings, foreign envoy meetings, and coronation ceremonies. 
Note the painted folding screen behind the throne. The sun and moon represent the king and queen, while the five peaks stand for a mythical place. The Irworobongdo screen displayed the splendor of the Joseon royal court. 

As always, it's important to look up. Look how beautifully decorated the lofty ceilings are decorated.
