전주 - 경기전 (慶基殿)

'Gyeonggijeon' was a shrine constructed in 1410 for King Tae-jo, the founder of the Joseon Dynasty. It was partially destroyed during the Hideyoshi's invasion of Korea from 1592 to 1598 and was rebuilt in 1614. The shrine didn't attract much of my attention as compared to the autumn foliage within its compound. There were not much maple trees around but yet the autumn scenery was equally magnificent.
