Arch of Triumph
  The Arch of Triumph is at the foot of Moran Hill in the capital city Pyongyang.

  It is a grand monument telling forever the immortal revolutionary exploits of the great leader Kim Il Sung who returned home in triumph after accomplishing the cause of national liberation in Juche 34(1945).
  It was unveiled in April Juche 71(1982) on the occasion of his 70th birth anniversary.
  The Arch of Triumph is a four-storey stone structure. It is 60 metres high and 50.1 metres wide.
  Seen in the middle of four sides of the first floor is an archway which is 27 metres high and 18 metres wide. The archway is fringed with 70 azalea reliefs symbolizing the 70th birth anniversary of Kim Il Sung
  Embossed on the walls of both sides are the memorable years "1925" and "1945" and below them are sculptural groups in relief. 1925 refers to the year when Kim Il Sung set out on the road of revolution and 1945 to the year when he liberated Korea. The sculptural groups truthfully show the pleasure and joy of the Korean people who greeted Kim Il Sung in the liberated country and their ardent desire for creating a new life.
  The immortal revolutionary paean "Song of General Kim Il Sung" is carved in the middle of the front and back sides of the second floor and Mt. Paektu on the left and right walls.
  Mt. Paektu is associated with the glorious revolutionary history of Kim Il Sung who led the anti-Japanese revolutionary struggle to victory.
  The Arch of Triumph shows a unique architecture combining modernity and national peculiarities.
