Thursday Doors: Gyeongbokgung Palace II

The following photos are my contribution to Thursday Doors, a door-lovers group hosted by Norm Frampton.

Last week, my door post was about Gyeongbokgung Palace in Seoul, Korea.  As I had more photos than I felt comfortable including in one post, I thought I’d share more photos from inside the palace compound this week. I hope you enjoy!

There were a wide variety of doors, so many more than I got a photo of.  We didn’t get through the entire compound!

There were very small doors …

… rugged doors.

… and extremely old doors!  This is a section saved from the original palace.

The Royal Banquet Hall (Saengmulbang) served as a kitchen for royal desserts.  My kind of place!  Notice how some of the doors are folded and lifted-up instead of opening in or out.

    1. Thanks so much, Marie, you’re so sweet. I only have photos of myself when I’m with my daughter. I don’t much like shots of myself. The picture on my blog was taken by her a few years ago. =)

        I don’t much like shots of myself either until I look back on old photos years later and think how well I looked back then! LOL!!

    1. The small doors were adorable. I’m not sure what exactly the purpose was for them. It could be they are like the Mongolian doors to the Gers where they must bow deeply to enter. =)

    This place is beautiful!! … and so many different doors. I really like the 5th photo in with the arched green doors surrounded by the rusty-red. There are so many variations in the use of rectangles in the design with the curved/rounded details on top.
