Gyeonghui-gung Palace was the smallest of the Five Grand Palaces built by the Joseon Dynasty, because it was originally constructed as just a royal villa. Kings and royalties used to hold their daily excursions here. Constructed in 1617 and completed in 1623, Gyeonghui-gung Palace originally had 100 units of large and small palace structures, but were destroyed or damaged during the Japanese occupation; much like how the other palaces in Seoul suffered under Japanese tyranny. The Japanese completely destroyed Gyeonghui-gung in order to put up a school for Japanese citizens. Before the Japanese came, a total of ten kings resided in this Seoul Palace.
