Jeonju Trip (part 4): At A Glance or ..well, Glimpse(S)
We're ready to 'tour' the village and the 2nd destination that we visited is Gyeonggijeon (경기전):dubbed as the palace where royal portraits of the Lee Seong-gye (the founder of Joseon Dynasty) were stored. (stories about this on other entries).
This was the 1st spot we visited. We got a chance to see the interior of Jeondong Catholic Church.
It's dubbed as being the number one place of Korean Catholic martyrdom.
Back to the 2nd spot we went to: Gyeonggijeon. We're told that the red gate (as seen on the picture) was marked red ..with a trident-like shape on top of it...which functions to ward off evils from entering the shrine.
Okay, the place was just like any other Korean-style palaces in Korea, but what gave this place a unique feature was the Cathedral visible on its background.
Quite a different view, right?
So, why not take a picture with THAT as a background?
As my friends went off further to other parts of the palace, I was still glued to keep on taking pictures...unaware that my friends were waiting for me.
Guess...this place might look quite different in Spring time.
Should I come again?
