The Monument to Party Founding was erected to convey forever the exploits performed by the great leaders Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il in founding and strengthening and developing the Workers’ Party of Korea.
It was unveiled on October 10, Juche 84 (1995) to mark the 50th founding anniversary of the WPK.
It consists of a tower body, a large circular structure and a round pedestal.
The tower body depicts a hammer, a sickle and a writing brush held up by a worker, a farmer and an intellectual, symbolic of the components of the WPK.
The circular structure bears on its girdle the slogan “Long live the Workers’ Party of Korea, which organizes and guides all the victories of the Korean people!”
Inside the circular structure is three-part bronze sculptures in relief.
The first part represents that the WPK has inherited the revolutionary traditions of the anti-Japanese war; the second part shows the WPK has achieved single-hearted unity; and the third part symbolizes that the WPK is a revolutionary party struggling for realizing independence.
The Monument to Party Founding is located in Munsu Street, Taedonggang District of Pyongyang.
