The house where Kings ascended the Throne

Jeukjodang, literally meaning "the house where kings ascended the throne" was so named after two kings did just that in this building. In 1592, King Seonjo adopted Jeukjodang as his temporary residence. It also served as the main throne hall for a few years while Junghwajeon was being rebuilt. In 1904, Jeukjodang, along with much of the palace buildings was destroyed in a fire.
