The Tonggwoldo map shows Naesamch'ong, Kwan'gwangch'ong, Yuksollu, Akkigo, and others as closed space, but in the modern restoration, the area that these buildings occupy is open. There are no trees in front of the Injongjon because this space was used for coronations and important ceremonies. (Choson ui chip, tonggwol e tulta, 2006, 43).
