If you want to take pictures with your hanbok around Jeonju, this place is worth a visit to to that. There aren't a lot of tourists unlike in Seoul where every nook and cranny of a palace has people taking their photos. The place is...More

A great opportunity to see the function and layout of traditional Korean dwellings (particularly of those with money) There is a museum in the center of the complex which is worth the entry price on its own. If you like traditional artifacts, this is a...More

It was interesting to learn some history with a 45 min guided tour in English. The storage area for the Joseon annals where quite interesting too.

You can see a lot of it from the inside so can consider saving the 3000 won to go in. There’s some history about why it’s famous but it is not a palace or anything similar. From the Chosun period.

If you have visited temples/palaces in Busan or Seoul this one does not really impress you as it is less spectical and beautiful. As people should not expect an palace anyway

We went here with a private tour guide which made all the difference as he could explain all the history in detail. (Without him we would have no doubt just wandered about and considered it only a collection of buildings and small temple). However it...More

A free tour every hour is included with the reasonable 3000 won admission which will enhance the visit for non-Korean visitors. Worth a visit if already in Hanok village.

This was worth the price if you are staying or visiting Jeonju Hanok Village. Not the best Shrine I've ever been to, but it was interesting and there is a museum on the premises that is interesting.
