Chilsong Gate

 

 
 
The Chilsong Gate in Moran Hill, Pyongyang is 1500 years-old historical relic.
It was first built in the mid-6th century as a northern gate of the Inner Wall of the Pyongyang Wall in the Koguryo time (B.C.277-A.D.668), a millenarian power. It was renewed in the Koryo time (918-1392) and again in 1711 and 1764.
It was named after the northern gate in the direction of the Great Bear.
One side of the wall is beetled toward the front of the gate and its end was fortified to protect the gate.
The turret building was decorated with moru patterns to add a dignity. The gatehouse is smaller in size but simple in structure and looks stately in keeping with the complex structure of the lower part.
The Chilsong Gate is associated with the history of the Korean people’s struggle against the foreign invaders.
Today it is a resting place and tourist resort of the Korean people.
