Samcheonggak 삼청각

Stumbling here was by chance as I had just finished my walk of the Seoul Fortress Wall. I had seen it from the distance and felt intrigued to come here. I’m not entirely sure what Samcheonggak is but there is a tea shop and restaurant in the main building and from what I could tell, performances are held here from time to time to introduce Korean culture and traditions. The buildings in this area were beautiful and had beautiful names to go with it. All having to do with harmony, nature, peace, music, and the like. It was a nice place to walk around and explore. I especially liked the Chinese expressions around the buildings and having the English explanations definitely helped as these expressions tend to use quite difficult Chinese characters.
