Hamhwadang Hall

Hamhwadang Hall and Jipgyeondang Hall, located north of Gyotaejeon Hall, is where King Gojong met with officials and welcomed foreign envoys when he resided at Geoncheonggung Residence. The exact purposes of the buildings is not known

It was believed that these halls were used as living quarters for concubines and court ladies. These two halls are the only remaining in the area. They were saved and used as a museum by the Japanese during their occupation of Korea.

Hamhwadang Hall and Jipgyeongdang Hall are connected by a corridor which is a fine example of the once complex network of passageways of the original palace.
