All the palaces in Seoul were burnt down during the Japanese invasion in 1592 and Changdeok Palace became the first palace to be rebuilt in 1610. Since then, it became the primary palace for about 270 years. Changdeok Palace was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997 and is regarded as a masterpiece of Korean palace architecture where the buildings are in perfect harmony with the natural setting.
