The capital of Joseon Dynasty, Jongno District is both culturally and politically significant. Many Joseon palaces remain in Jongno to this day, including Gyeongbukgung and Changdeokgung. Bukchon Hanok Village, with its traditional Korean houses, can also be found in the area. Two landmarks of great significance to present-day Seoul are the Blue House, the official residence of the President of Korea, and the Jogyesa Temple, the headquarters of the largest branch of Buddhism in the country.
