Royal Guard Changing Ceremonies

Image

Guards in Joseon time uniforms set a dramatic scene at the Gwanghwamun Gate, the entrance of Gyeongbokgung Palace in downtown Seoul, as they perform the re-enactment of the changing of the guards as done during the ancient Joseon Dynasty. 

This historical event expressed in modern times gives a sense of nostalgia from a never forgotten past. It captures the essence of a culture and dramatic rituals during those great historical periods. Not only is this an authentically acted and colorful presentation, it infuses and manifests an enduring bond to tradition of a nation.

This dramatic re-enactment, which started in 1996, takes place every day except Tuesday.
