November 17, 2022

The Tower of the Juche Idea is situated on the bank of Taedong River in the part of East Pyongyang opposite Kim Il Sung Square.

It was unveiled on April 15 1982 on the occasion of the 70th birthday of President Kim Il Sung.

The tower was built as a proud grand monumental edifice in the era of the Workers’ Party, reflecting the ardent desire of the Koreans and the world’s progressive people to highly praise and remember for all ages the greatness and invincible vitality of the immortal Juche idea created by the President.

Centring on the torch tower, there stand the main thematic sculptural trio of worker, farmer and intellectual in front of the tower, sub-thematic sculptural groups and pavilions on its both sides and two large fountains in the middle of the Taedong River. They form a large architectural group in a vast area presenting a grand epic picture.
