The Thonggun Pavilion is located in Uiju Town, Uiju County, North Phyongan Province.


It was built as a northern command post of the Uiju fort.


The pavilion was first built in the first half of the Koryo days, and underwent repair several times later.


The present one was rebuilt in 1478.


The pavilion is associated with the history of struggle of the Korean people who valiantly fought against foreign invaders including Khitan.
