There are multiple monumental structures located on Moran Hill. They include the Arch of Triumph, Kim Il-sung Stadium, the monument to President Kim Il-sung's handwritings from his address at a rally to welcome him on his triumphant return to the homeland and the mural painting in commemoration of President Kim Il-sung's speech on his return. At the foot of the hill is the Jonsung revolutionary site, which conveys the revolutionary achievements of President Kim Il-sung and the Hungbu revolutionary site which is associated with the history of leader Kim Jong Il and includes trees bearing slogans written during the anti-Japanese revolutionary struggle.
