Ryongwang Pavilion

Ryongwang Pavilion in Pyongyang

It is one of the eight scenes of west Korea. It stands near the Taedong Gate and Pyongyang Bell.
It was first built in the Koguryo Dynasty and was named the Sansu Pavilion. And it was rebuilt in the Ri Dynasty and was renamed the Ryongwang Pavilion meaning a pavilion polished by sunlight and winds.
It is told that Kim Hwang Won, Koryo's famous poet cried because he could not express the unique beauty of Pyongyang. Another legend tells the tale of Kye Wol Hyang, a patriotic kisaeng who killed a Japanese general to defend the Walled City of Pyongyang in the period of Imjin Patriotic War(1592-1598).
