Mangyongdae (Chosŏn'gŭl: 만경대) is a neighbourhood in Mangyongdae-guyok, Pyongyang, North Korea. North Korean propaganda claims Mangyongdae as the birthplace of North Korean leader Kim Il-sung, although in his memoirs he wrote that he had been born in the nearby neighbourhood of Chilgol. Mangyongdae is, however, where his father, Kim Hyong-jik was from, and where Kim Il-sung spent his childhood. The original structures of the site have been replaced with replicas.
Mangyongdae has since been incorporated to the city of Pyongyang.
