There is a ceremony each day at the Gyeongbokgung Palace in Seoul, Korea. Guards stand tall in their brightly colored uniforms. Drummers sound off in a ceremonial cadence with each step toward the palace gates.
Horns blow and then the only sound you hear are their footsteps as they march in a single step atop the ancient gravel that has seen this action for centuries. Finally, the largest of the drums sounds so loud that it reverberates within your chest. The Palace guard has changed their watch and men like this one in the picture stand their post.
The opportunity to visit this palace was not one to be missed. It was a good day and a unique experience.
