Sitting behind Changdeokgung Palace, Huwon Secret Garden was the former private garden of the imperial family. The garden rests at the foot of Mt. Bugaksan and follows the Joseon gardening principles of largely allowing nature to rule and keeping artificial landscaping to a minimum.

Over the years Huwon Secret Garden has doubled as an archery range and military drill grounds, but walking through the garden you'll get the feeling its best use was for relaxation and contemplation.
