Through the Gate

Right across the pond from the Buyongjeong pavilion is the much larger Juhamnu building. Since we are not permitted to go up to the building, I had to enjoy it from afar. With its rather narrow frame, the gate leading up to Juhamnu feels rather top-heavy when looking at it from straight-on. Get closer and at an angle, and it becomes a soaring beauty. What a view the royal family and its visitors must have had from the balcony of the Juhamnu building. Such tranquil beauty.
