Let's go to pay respect to Eternal President Kim Il Sung - North Korea

Every visitor has to come in this place, in Mansu hill, make one minute silent, pay respect in front of the giant statue, and put flowers (3 euros) in front of the giant bronze statue.The Guide said: first explanation, then pictures...

The Mansudae Grand Monument was erected in April, 1972 to commemorate the 60th birthday of President Kim Il Sung. It is located on Mansu Hill in front of the Korean Revolutionary Museum and the huge mosaic of Mt. Paektu.

The bronze statue of the late President Kim is 66 ft. / 20 m. high and looks out over Pyongyang below. On either side of his statue are giant stone replicas of the Korean flag and the Workers Party of Korea flag. On either side of these flags are over 200 almost life-size bronze statues of various military and civilian figures in heroic poses.
