Injeongjeon is the main hall of Changdeokgung palace.

The officials assemble here to greet the kings for new year's day.

Kings conducted state affairs, held national ceremonies and received foreign officials.

It was equipped with various decorations that symbolized the formality and diplomacy of the palace in the Joseon Dynasty.

On either side of the building, there are corridors with roofs, with the ground containing the stones indicating the rank of officials.

When the Crown Price was proclaimed, or there was a national celebration, the king was congratulated by the officials in Injeongjeon.

It was firstly built along with Changdeokgung palace in the 5th year of King Taejong (1405).

It had been repaired several times and the present state of the building was built in the 4th year of King Sunjo (1804).

Injeongjeon, a two-story building, was occupied with 5 rooms in the front and 4 rooms in the side.

The roofs are '八' shape.

It was erected over the two-story platform.

On the center of the ceiling, two phoenixes among the clouds were painted.

Behind the high pillars in the middle, the throne was placed.

Behind the throne, there was a folding screen with the painting of "The Sun, the Moon and the Five Peaks," which was embroidered figures of the sun, the moon, and the five famous mountains.

The top of the roof was decorated with a plum design, which was a symbol of an imperial family during the very end of the Joseon Dynasty. Injeongjeon, one of the three great halls along with Geunjeongjeon in Gyeongbokgung palace and Myeongjeongjeon in Changgyeonggung palace, was the main place that represents the history of the Joseon Dynasty.

It differs from other two palaces in this respect.
