Gwanghanmuh Square

I came to this square for one reason….King Sejong!

I saw pictures of this statue, and loved its immensity and how it is backdropped by both a beautiful palace and a cool-looking mountain.

King Sejong was the inventor of the Hangul alphabet, which is fittingly engraved on the side of his statue.

This square is also a great spot to view  Gyeongbokgung Gate, which sits there importantly, welcoming visitors to the wonderful palace just beyond.

From one spot, you can admire Seoul’s modernity, appreciate it’s ancient history, and enjoy the beauty of the surrounding nature. I love that in a square!
