Geunjeong-jeon(royal palace) is a large building with 2 stories. But the inside space is wide and the ceiling is high as the separation between two stories was removed. It is the oldest wooden architecture remained today.

Geunjeong-jeon was used for conferences with governent officials, the inauguration ceremony of the king were inaugurated-the place to determine important things.

The floor is paved naturally and skillfully for granite. On the floor stones are set up to represent the degree of government officials.

They must stand before their proper stones according to their status.

The stones are called 'Pumgyeseog' in Korean. It means the stones classify their degrees. There are 12 stones.

In the ‘Chosun’ Dynasty there was 18 degrees for the government officials but the provincial officials couldn't participate in this conference.
