Pyongyang, June 27 (KCNA) -- Lots of historical relics showing the wisdom and talents of the Korean nation can be seen on scenic Moran Hill in Pyongyang, the capital city of the DPRK.

Among them is Choesung Pavilion, built as a command post for the walled city of Pyongyang in the mid-6th century. It was called Osung Pavilion at the beginning and then renamed Choesung Pavilion in the sense that the view from the pavilion is extremely beautiful. And it was rebuilt in 1716.

The one-storied pavilion with double eaves has battlements at the top of the embankment. The embankment piled up with trimmed granite is enclosed with 0.8-meter-high stone fence.

President Kim Il Sung visited it on March 2, Juche 35 (1946) and other occasions, saying that the pavilion associated with the fighting feats of the ancestors should be well preserved.

The pavilion is now used as a resting place for the people.
