North Korea: Mansu Hill (Mansudae)

Reading Time: 1 minute


This is a huge monument to Kim Il Sung at the top of a hill overlooking Pyongyang which can be seen from all over the city.


Either side of the Kim Il Sung statue are two further statues. The first is of the workers…


…and the second depicts soldiers ready to sacrifice themselves for the General


We laid flowers at the bottom of the statue before bowing together as a mark of respect. Many people were visiting the statue that day as it was the Presidents birthday.
