Injeongjeon Throne Hall, Changdeokgung Palace

The throne hall of the Changdokgung Palace, much like that of Gyeongbokgung Palace, has the outer appearance of being two stories, but in actuality is a single floor with a lofty ceiling. Westernized in 1908, it has electric lightling, glass windows, curtains, and wooden floorboards (which replaced baked clay blocks). Coronation of new kings, major political affairs, and receiving of foreign envoys took place here.
