Create an itinerary including Statue of Sejong the Great
Look up and admire Statue of Sejong the Great, a large statue of the revered ruler, and a focal point of the large, ceremonial square that surrounds. In front of the 9.5 m (31.2 ft) statue of the king, who ruled from 1418-1450 CE, sit a number of inventions that came into use during his progressive and technologically-minded reign, including a celestial globe, rain gauge, and sun dial. Best known as the inventor of the Hangul alphabet, several inscribed characters mark the stone plinth on which the king, seated on a throne and smiling, sits. Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Seoul fast, fun, and easy.
