360° VR panorama between the back of Gangnyeongjeon Hall and Yanguimun Gate in Gyeongbokgung Palace, Seoul, South Korea.
Yanguimun (양의문) Gate is located behind the king’s living quarters, Gangnyeongjeon Hall (강녕전), and leads to the queen’s living quarters, Gyotaejeon Hall (교태전). The queen’s separate living quarters were built during the reign of King Sejong, who carried out his executive duties in his living quarters, and wanted to allow his wife some privacy from the government officials who would often need to meet with him.
On either side of Yanguimun Gate are red brick chimneys, decorated with stylized Chinese characters. The left chimney is decorated with the Chinese characters 萬壽無疆, meaning “long, endless life”, while the right chimney is decorated with the characters 千世萬歲, meaning “thousands of years”.
