The meaning of the building of Chang Deck Goong : Soon Peong Moon and Dae Jo Jeon.

in travel •  15 days ago

There are 4 Palaces in Seoul which had been built in Choson Dynasty.

Gyeong Bok Goong was built at first. Chang Deok Goong was build at second.
King Tae Jong, 3rd King of Choson, built Chang Deok Goong.

He was a 5th son of King Tae Jo who founded Choson dynasty. Even though Tae Jong did the best distinguished service for founding Choson Dynasty, his father, the very first King Tae Jo did not give him the king’s chair.

Fianally, King Tae Jong seized the Power through military coup, at that time he slaughtered several hundreds of officials who could be against his coup.

They were killed in Gyeong Bok Going.
After taking King’s chair, he ordered to build the new palace which was Chang Deok Goong.
In my guess, it would be not easy for hime to reign in Gyeong Bok Goong which was built by his father.

In this posting, I’d like to post the place of King and Queen.
As I posted before, Choson was built on the basis of Confucian philosophy.
In confucian society, the most important thing was the order. There must be the order in the world according to Confucian philosophy.

Between King and Subject,
Between husband and wife,
Between man and female,
Between Aged and Younger, …

When you visit Korea, it is not difficult to find how the old ages are respected.
Of course, this virtue is now diminishing, the thinking to respect the aged remains until now.

The interest thing I found out in Chang Deok Goong was the gate, name of Seon Pyeong Moon.

Seon Pyeong Moon was the entrance gate of the resident area of King and Queen.

The meaning of Seon Pyeong is ' broadenning the equality'.
It could be estimated that King and Queen are equal in this place.

In Confucian principle, Queen was not only a wife but also a Subject.
In this point of view, the naming of this gate had a special meaning in the relationship between King and Queen.

You can see the main building for King and Queen through Seon Pyeong Moon.

The name of King and Queen’s resident building is Dae Jo Jeon.

Dae Jo means ‘making big thing’, here big thing means a baby boy who will succeed in King’s chair.

Having a baby between King and Queen was very important to secure the legitimacy of King’s political power.
When Queen could not have a baby boy, King was supposed to have a baby with concubines.
But in these case, power struggles in Palace had been serious.

The tragedies in Choson Kingdom had been directly related with this problem.

Dae Jo Jeon was very beautiful but humble place.

The pics of below were scenery near Dae Jo Jeon

(water fell on the ground)

Behind Dae Jo Jeon, there was a gate to the Secret Garden.

We couldn’t enter into the Secret Garden, so we headed for Chang Gyeong Goong.

A television series talk about Jang Yeong-sil (Song Il-gook), a popular scientist of Joseon in the 15th century. Born as a slave but with the remarkable talent and the profound passion for astronomy, he was known by King Sejong (Kim Sang-kyung) and was recommended to the court. Jang Yeong-sil had a lot of contributions for the science-technology of Joseon, he has left many great inventions such as the water clock, the sundial, the astronomical instruments, the rain gauge and also many research on weaponry.

·

Yes, that's right.
at last, Jang yeong sil was executed for his mistake in making King's vehicle

Happy new year! ^^

BTW, before I forgot everything.

HAPPY HAPPY AND BLESSED NEW YEAR SIR.

Interesting your article, especially the respect that still remains in that community with respect to the ages of its inhabitants, in terms of the buildings the photographs explain how dedicated they were when the construction was done plus the time to build for four different reigns , I hope to see the photos of that forbidden garden some time, I will be waiting for another of your publications and I will be a follower I hope that you also take a look at my post, happy year 2018

@slowwalker This post is not only to be read, this post is motivating, it gives you tools to continue growing, and that is interesting, particularly since I am in Steemit I get up every day at 4 am I review the posts published On the rise, New, Trend, and I review some post from the people I am following and those who follow me and every time I notice the difference in my positive observations that are making me grow, I am learning to read these publications and this is becoming a good habit, thanks for sharing, I would love you to visit my publications to see if you get something interesting in them and would be pleasant for me, thank you very much and Happy New Year 2018

thanks for your sharing , let me know more about the history of korea and more about confucians in korea. To some extent, South Korea is a good inheritance of Confucianism, which I think is even better than the present of China.elder people should be respected by the young people .

·

hahaha.
I think there the respect for the olds remains in china

·
·

yeah , that must be .

Happy new year to you!

이곳에서 글을 접하게 되는군요...
경복궁의 열주는 소나무중 으뜸인 금강송으로 사용되었다고 합니다
금강송은 강원도가 주 생산지인데 조선시대 이동수단이 없었음에도
금강송이 사용되었다는 것이 놀랍지 않으신지요...
지금에야 차로 이동할 수 있었지만 조선시대는 어떻게 이동을 했을까요 ...

·

네 우리 문화와 역사를 소개하기 위해 오래전 부터 해오던 일 입니다.

금강송을 옮기는 것이 어마어마하게 어려웠을 것이고 그만큼 정성이 들어 있었겠지요

nice pic @slowwalker happy new year goodluck

Changgyeong Gung is the one of the most inspiring places i ever visited..!
And btw. your photos are amazing!

·

Yes, I'll post on Changgyeong Gung later

이게 비단 과거에만 적용되었던 문제는 아닌 것 같습니다. 가문의 장자, 장손으로서 느껴지는게 이와 비슷합니다 ㅎㅎ부담감도 있고요.. 여자친구가 또 외국인이다보니까 여러가지 고려해야 할 부분이 있네요

·

그렇지요. 그래도 시간이 지나면 많이 달라지겠지요
아예 여자친구가 외국인이면 더 낳을지도 모릅니다. ㅎㅎ

That place seems full of history and just beautiful, i would like to travel there ! thanks for sharing :)

·

thank you for comment

That was just amazing. You can see the contrast from the old dynasty single story wooden building to the modern skyscraper building from the 20-21st century in the background of it. Even during that dynasty, there were one and two story buildings of wood and stone.
Just in awe about that.

·

It looks like 2 story from outside
but 1 story inside

It seems the style of this building is similar to that of China...but why?

·

It looks similar, but slightly different.
There would be chance to explain the differences among Korea, Japan and China

Someday ill be travelling there 😀 Thanks @slowwalker for sharing. 😀

·

It would be a best choice
You will not regret

50%이상 보팅안하기로 공약을해서...
많이죄송합니다.
자주 뵙겠습니다.

·

ㅎㅎ 여유를 가지시지요.
시간이 지나면 조금씩 부드러워지겠지요.

Great post. Keep it up!
