Bust graves at the cemetery

The Revolutionary Martyr's Cemetery is a military cemetery outside of Pyongyang, dedicated to the "Revolutionary Struggle" against Japanese occupation, namely those who fought alongside Kim Il-Sung as a "guerilla fighter" during the 1930s and 1940s.

The cemetery is located on significantly elevated ground at the top of a hill, looking down upon the city. Those who are buried in it are represented by Bronze busts. It is the final resting places of several significant members of the Kim family, including Kim Jong-Suk, Kim Il-Sung's first wife and also his mother Kang Pan-Sok.
