Roof Ridge Tiles

When visiting the Changdeokgung Palace recently, the ridge tiles on the palace roofs caught my attention.

Creepy creatures, as I saw them from afar looked so much like a life form of the animals.

From far the roof top looked as if they were "occupied"

At one glance they looked rather scary but as one got closer, one would discover that these were ridge tiles made in the shape of animals and are placed on the roof of a palace to prevent evil misleads and misfortunes.
