Jin Hee Palace (Hangul: 진희궁; Hanja: 眞熙宮; RR: Jin Hui Gung) is the official residence of the monarch of Ga Guk and its Royal Family. Located in the capital of Ga Guk, its territory spans across within and outside the palace grounds.
It is unknown when it was built, but the palace had endured a fire once, particularly during the Jeogwa Revolution after the death of King Jin Hyul. However, it was implied that it had been reconstructed until the reign of his predecessor, King Jin Won. After nearly a decade, it suffered another fire caused by the Deung Ha Bul Myung rebel army during their rebellion. Like before, it was also rebuilt for the latest monarch, King Jin Jeok.
