Jongmyo Shrine was built by order of King Taejo in 1394; is a Confucian Shrine dedicated for ancestral rites during the Joseon period. The ongoing ancestral rites performed by this shrine resulted in it being recognized by UNESCO as a world heritage in 1995.
This shrine is viewed from the King's throne at Gyeongbok Palace & it should be on the King's left side. While another important Confucian shrine; Sajik Shrine on his right.
So please watch where u're walking while in here. It's their village therefore have some respect to the 'residents'. But I did walked across this passage as I need to get to the other side of the walkway. And yes, posing upon its ground as well. Only one take though. Nothing I-suddenly-entered-the-spirit-world kinda thing happened; fortunately.
Just fyi, I actually had quite an issue with my camera on that day. Don't know what happened nor what setting I used, but most all the pictures I took were either blurred or discoloured. They looked ok to me when viewed through the camera's screen. So I didn't bother about setting the function & whatnot. But when transferred to the lappy, the outcomes disappoint me! BIG TIME! It took hours for me to fix them but some unfortunately aren't bound to be edited. Lucky I have pictures from Ms G's camera. So yeah, one-third of the pictures uploaded in this entry came from hers. Gomawoyo chingu-ya.
Phew! It took me nearly a week to complete this entry. I have been on-and-off scribbling. All thanks to the tripping-busy-moi-as-always. Semester has started & the students flooded the cafe I only have little time to scribble. Curi masa. Unlike during the semester break, time is never a problem for me. Arrived home feeling all torn out & have no mood to blog. I only scribble when I feel like writing...and no mood means good night. Ngek.
