Juche Tower in Pyongyang, North Korea Aug 22, 2009
I was very much looking forward to a visit to the Tower of Juche Idea in Pyongyang, North Korea, and I was not disappointed. The tower is named after the Juche principle practiced in North Korea which is a combination of self-reliance, Marxism and isoloationism. It is over 550 ft. high. One can ascend the monument by elevator (which is safe) and thus have fews of the entire city of Pyongyang.

Great view of Pyongyang from Juche Tower Aug 30, 2007
The tower of Juche Idea is dedicated to the North Korean philosophy of self-reliance. The tower sits on the shore of the river across from Kim Il Sung square. Huge plaza surrounding it with statues of happy prosperous workers and fountains. In front of the tower is a statue with the three Eastern communist symbols of hammer, sickle, and calligraphy brush. At the base of the tower are plaques from around the world from admirers and adopters of the Juche Idea. The tower is topped by a huge flame made of glass which is lit up at night.
