Chongnyu Pavilion

The Chongnyu Pavilion is situated in Kyongsang-dong, Central District, Pyongyang.

It had been built as the tower of the Jonghae Gate, the western gate of the inner fort of the Walled City of Pyongyang, in the days of Koguryo, and underwent large repairs in 1716 in the days of the feudal Joson dynasty, which coincided with the improvement of the walls in Pyongyang.

In 1927, the Jonghae Gate was demolished and its tower was placed where it now stands. Then it was named after the Chongnyu Cliff.

The pavilion is now a place which is frequented by the Korean people and foreign tourists.
