The Mangyongdae District national heritage protection and management station protects and manages historical sites in a proper way.

It keeps up with the state of preservation of Pobun Hermitage, Ryonggok Confucian School, Sosan Fort and dolmen from the period of Ancient Joson (between the early 30th century BC and 108 BC) to take scientific protection and management measures lest historical sites are afflicted by natural disasters caused by abnormal weather conditions.

In particular, it makes sure that caretakers are permanently stationed at historical sites of isolated areas like Pobun Hermitage of Mt Ryongak so that they can carefully arrange work for the protection of the sites in collaboration with the station on a constant basis.

“Pobun Hermitage is a temple built in the period of Koguryo Kingdom (277 BC-AD 668) and rebuilt during the feudal Joson dynasty (1392-1910). I feel pride in and responsible for taking charge of such a valuable historical site,” said Sin Chol Ryong, a caretaker at the station.

The station also carries on projects in a planned way to refashion the historical education yard of Sosan Fort for enhancing natural beauty, plant new species of flowering shrubs and lay out a green area around the site.

Besides, measures are taken in an effective way to tend and prevent damage to such living monuments as Styphnolobium japonicum and zelkova of Mt Ryongak.

“A sustainable and long-term project, the protection and management work of historical sites requires perseverance and responsibility. Therefore, some caretakers settled in uninhabited depths of mountains and have been engaged in the protection and management of sites for over a decade. Thanks to their sincere and devoted efforts, invaluable assets of the country are firmly protected, I think,” said Kim Jin Hyok, senior staffer of the Pyongyang Municipal People’s Committee.
