The Sinchon Museum of American War Atrocities.
  • Chahyesa Buddhist temple. Famous temple founded in 1572
  • 1 Sinchon Museum of American War Atrocities. Sinchon is the site of a massacre of civilians which is blamed on the Americans by the North Korean government (Historians outside North Korea believe the massacre was propagated by both pro and anti communist vigilantes at the time). Expect a fairly one sided view of history.
