In 1953 Panmunjom (the Joint Security Area) was where the signing of the Korean Armistice Agreement took place, to end the Korean war. The JSA has also been the site of many major events, such as the repatriation of prisoners of war after the hostilities ended, across the Bridge of No Return. Meetings and negotiations between North and South Korea take place here but it's also popular with tourists who wish to stand in this important place in modern military history.
