This is the Royal Ancestral Shrine of Jongmyo - housing the spirits of the kings of the Joseon dynasty. Every May the ceremonial ancestral rites are enacted on this stone forecourt. The buildings are very plain with undecorated wooden roofs - since the spirits don't need elaborate decoration :-)
Here's a video of the ceremony.
