Pyongyang, June 30 (KCNA) -- Around Mt Taesong in Pyongyang, the capital city of the DPRK, there are lots of historical relics showing the might and culture of Koguryo Kingdom (B.C. 277-A.D. 668).

Among the relics are Taesongsan Fort, the ruins of Anhak Palace and Kwangbop Temple, together with mural paintings registered as a world cultural heritage.

They have been preserved with deep care as national treasures under the policy of the Workers' Party of Korea and the government for protecting the national heritages.

O Hye Son, director of the Taesongsan Heritage Management Office, told KCNA:

The historical relics in Mt Taesong are associated with the devoted efforts made by the peerlessly great men to glorify the national heritages.

Kwangbop Temple is a Buddhist temple erected by Kwanggaetho, the 24th king of Koguryo, in 392. This temple was completely destroyed due to the enemy's indiscriminate bombing in the last Fatherland Liberation War (1950-1953).

In Juche 78 (1989), President Kim Il Sung gave an instruction on restoring the temple to its original state. And he settled the issues arising in its construction, personally examining a tentative plan on it.

In February 1991, the President went round the temple and expressed his satisfaction over the fact that it was restored perfectly on the principle of historicism.

The historical relics showing the time-honored history of the Korean nation and its developed culture are instilling the national pride into the citizens of the DPRK. -0-
