After visiting most of the other monuments in Pyongyang, I felt that there wasn't anything particularly special about this one as it lacked any particular significance. Nonetheless, it's a good opportunity to learn more about the history of the Korean Workers' Party from the guides.

The Monument to the Korean Workers Party is in the centre of Pyongyang and close to the Taedong River, it is anything but modest. It is a huge and assertive granite structure comprising three hands holding larger than life elements of a hammer which represents...More

It's interesting but there are some great monuments in Pyongyang. The stylized hammer, suckle etc obviously is not a new theme. It is however impressively large, as most party monuments are in Pyongyang. The associared picture mueseum in the complex shows the Dear Leaders with...More
