Bed Chamber and Coffin Hall

Located in a quiet part of the inner court area of the Changgyeonggung Palace is the building known as Tongmyeongjeon. Originally it was the bed chamber for the queen. The structure is elevated to show its important status. Here we see a pond with a stone wall, spanned by a stone bridge. Later, the building was used as a coffin hall for the wives of King Jungjeong and King Myeongjong.
