North Korea | Pyongyang | Wonsan | Sinuiju
North Korea, precisely the “Democratic People's Republic of Korea” is a country in East Asia occupying the Northern part of the Korean Peninsula.
The country has negligible relations with the rest of the world is often term as “isolated”. The country faced major criticism from the world after it started its nuclear program and the rest of the world led by the US imposes sanctions on the country which left the country miserable in terms of economy and development.
The ancient history of the Korean Peninsula dates back thousands of years. Archeological evidence shows that human activity in the region dates back to the Lower Paleolithic age.
The “Gojoseon” was the starting period of the history of modern Korea. Later, as the time passed many kingdoms ruled the region in their respective periods. By the start of the 20th century, the Japanese Empire was getting strong enough and finally, in 1910, it was annexed by Japan.
Active resistance was given by the local population, Japanese brutal tactics and other situations also led to the execution of thousands of Koreans. Subsequently, in 1945 the Japanese forces surrendered to Soviet and American forces and the Korean Peninsula was divided between them.
As a result of differences (democratic and communist), and several other events, the result was “Korean War” which resulted in the loss of millions of lives. As both e.g. Soviet and Americans influenced Korea, both of them wanted their type of government e.g. Communist and democratic in Korea.
This led to the conflict and North Korea And South Korea was aided by the Soviet Union and America respectively. By the mid-1950,
North Korean forces aided by the Soviet Union and China attacked South Korea which resulted in the deployment of the United Nations and US troops in South Korea to defend.
The war escalated over 3 years and in the result of massive bombings, conflicts, and battles, over 1.2 million people died. After the war ended, both sides i.e.
North and South militarized their borders and the situation is still dangerous till today (e.g. both of them are in a state of war till today).
The terrain of North Korea is mountainous and hill with narrow valleys. Around 80% of the North Koreas land is covered by mountains. Other features include lush green valleys, plains, forests, and rivers. Also, forests cover approx. 70% of North Korea’s land.
The economy of North Korea has suffered a lot due to the US sanctions. The economy consists of industries, services, agriculture, and other sectors and is highly nationalized.
Russia and China are the main partners of the country and have provided tremendous support due to mutual interests. In addition, much of the revenue is spent on the military to maintain a balance of power.
Korean is the most widely spoken language of the country, while in terms of religion, the majority of the North Korean population is non-religious.
Some of the main religions in the country include Korean Shamanism, Chondoism, Buddhism, and Christianity.
Our prayers are with the people of both North and South Korea and we hope that one day both of the Koreas may unite again and to end the suffering on people of both sides.

We are tech professionals and working in USA. After a year long search we brought the house. After buying the house I started looking for consultant who can help me evaluating the house. I came across Subhavaastu website which has lot of information. I contacted Mr.Suresh and requested him to help with our house vastu. It has been an incredible delight working with him.. He is very detailed oriented person and never compromises with his work. I am typically not interested to deliver the reviews. But after working with Mr. Suresh I decided to share my experience. Mr. Suresh has great expertise in providing vastu consultation to USA property. He is always available through email and phone l to answer questions. I am writing this review hoping it will help other people like me who lives in abroad. Please take advise before buying the house. I highly recommend Mr. Suresh as he has great experience with structure of USA properties and also he provides genuine consultation. I really appreciate Mr. Suresh's help in evaluating our house - Padma - Boston - USA
"I contacted Sureshji to consult on our current home. He was spot on in identifying vastu dosha in regards to the problems we were having. He suggested remedies but we are still looking for a new house. Since then I have been in touch with him for finding a right home for us. He is very sincere and truly wishes better lives for everyone. He doesn’t compromise with quality and is always responsive to queries. He recommends solutions as per location as vaastu rules differ for each country. He is greatly contributing to the society with his knowledge of Vaastu Shastra and dedication towards his work. Keep up the good work Sureshji and wish you success and happiness!" - Megha - Virginia - USA
I have consulted Suresh Garu during December 2014 during the process of buying a house in Texas, USA. I have occupied the house for one year now, and feel like dropping a review regarding my experience during the entire process. I am very much satisfied with the kind of service I received from him. He is very knowledgeable and I was often stunned by his detailed analysis during the course of my interaction with him. He was very much accessible over phone (perhaps more than 10 times for one house plan!) and the price is very much reasonable especially compared with the cost of the house. I noticed his burning desire to help me in making informed decisions on certain things. I have seen some people pretending to know this subject and misguiding those who come for help by saying only what we want to hear. SubhaVaastu is definitely not that one. Finally, I am strong believer of leaving certain things to experts in those subjects. I have been in US for more than 13 years and have seen people doing their own corrections (by reading website articles) trying to save few dollars. Please don’t do that. You would end up in causing more damage. I highly recommend you to engage SubhaVaastu in your next project - Satish - Dallas - TX - USA
