Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il’s bronze statues on Mansu Hill in 360
14 July 2017

Bronze statues of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il on Mansu Hill  are two of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea’s main symbols. Before Kim Jong Il’s death, only his father’s statue had stood there. In 2012, the second statue appeared. Every visitor to Mansu Hill must stick to a strict ritual: clothes must be unassuming and tidy, and all visitors must lay flowers at the pedestals and bow before the statues. Pyongyang residents go there during major public holidays, Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il’s birthdays. Newlyweds have to visit Mansu Hill, and groups of schoolchildren and military personnel are taken there for a visit.
