Interesting facts about this location
The Imjin River is the 7th largest river in Korea, North and South Korea. It flows from North to South, crossing the Demilitarized Zone and joining the Han River downstream of Seoul, very near the Yellow Sea. The river is not the namesake of the Imjin Waeran Japanese invasions of Korea in the late 1500s.
Dora Observatory is on the South Korean side of the 38th parallel. Situated on top of Dorasan (Mount Dora), the observatory looks across the Demilitarized Zone. It is the part of South Korea closest to the North. Visitors can catch a rare glimpse of the reclusive North Korean state through binoculars from the 304 square feet, 500-person capacity observatory.
Battle of Imjin River (1592)
For the similarly named battle during the Korean War (1950-1953), see Battle of the Imjin River. The Battle of Imjin River was a battle during the Japanese invasions of Korea (1592-1598). It resulted in a Japanese victory.

It was 2,400 meters south of the military demarcation line and lies within the Joint Security Area (JSA), also known as Panmunjom. The Military Demarcation Line (or 38th Parallel) forms the border between South Korea (the Republic of Korea) and North Korea (the Democratic People's Republic of Korea). It was returned to the Republic of Korea in 2006.
