Arch of Triumph

The Arch of Triumph is a grand monument which was built to hand down through generations the immortal revolutionary exploits of President Kim Il Sung who achieved the historic cause of Korea’s liberation by leading the 20-year-long anti-Japanese armed struggle to the victory.

It was unveiled on April 14, Juche 71 (1982) on the occasion of the 70th birth anniversary of Kim Il Sung.

It is 60 metres high.

On the central part of its front and back sides are the immortal revolutionary hymn “Song of General Kim Il Sung” with carved bronze statues “Bugler of Victory” on both sides of the song, signalling Korea’s liberation to the whole world.

On its right and left walls are the drawings of Mt Paektu, the sacred mountain of the revolution.

Carved in relief on the four pillars are “1925” and “1945”, which symbolize the year when Kim Il Sung embarked on the road of the revolution and the year when he returned to Pyongyang after achieving Korea’s liberation by leading the great anti-Japanese war to the victory.

Below them are sub-theme group sculptures “Long Live General Kim Il Sung!”, “Long Live Korea’s Liberation!”, “Looking up at Kim Il Sung” and “For the Building of New Korea!”.

Its archway is 27 metres high and 18 metres wide.

Its archway is framed with 70 azaleas, symbolic of the President’s 70th birth anniversary.

The Arch of Triumph was built with granite by organically combining national architectural style with modern architecture, but it seems to be a wooden building.
