Arch of Triumph

 
 
The Arch of Triumph at the foot of the Moran Hill in Pyongyang is a grand monument erected to convey to posterity the great exploits of President Kim Il Sung who led the anti-Japanese revolutionary struggle to victory to liberate the country (August 15, 1945) and made a triumphal return.
This 60 m high grand stone structure is composed of an archway open to four sides in the middle of the ground floor and the contracting flat roofs in 2nd, 3rd and 4th stories.
The immortal revolutionary hymn “Song of General Kim Il Sung” and the numbers “1925” and “1945” are meant to convey that he embarked on the road of revolution in his young age to free the country through over 20 years of bloody war against Japanese imperialists.
Sacred revolutionary mountain Mt. Paektu is line-carved on the surface of the right and left walls on the 2nd story.
Its subsidiary carved images “Long live General Kim Il Sung!” and “Long live country’s liberation” and carved images “Looking up to the General” and “To construction of the new country” clearly shows its revolutionary content.
There are 70 reliefs of azalea blossoms round the rim of the archway to symbolize the 70th anniversary of the birth of President Kim Il Sung.
The Arch of Triumph was built at the proposition and guidance of Chairman Kim Jong Il and unveiled on April 14, 1982.
