This seaside Temple had a bit of everything with an active Temple, some vendors selling goods, pretty views, Buddhist statues, some shrines, and various walking paths.

A beautiful temple at the edge of the sea. It is a visit worthwhile, just be prepaired for a lot of people since it's popular.

Verdict: - Great for tourists wanting photo opportunities Recommendations: - Go on a week day when it is less crowded - Preferably go on cool day; quite a bit of walk and stairs - Wear enclosed shoes; rocky surfaces - Try local food (red bean paste tarts, fish cakes etc.) at "food alley" along the way to temple How to...

It's a long walk from the bus stop to the temple. Actually it's quite small area. Interesting if you are a pious Buddhist.

Beautiful Temple, with amazing views. There are quite a few stairs involved so you will be doing a lot of climbing but it's well worth it as the place is breadthtaking.

Whats more interesting is that it has an unique location, which makes the visit very worthwhile. It stunned me, the duality of the beautiful scenery together with the peaceful temple. personally i think itssuitable for people of all... More

Haedong Yonggung Temple is a short trip from Busan, get there early before the crowds start arriving (you may want to be on your way out by 10:00AM). When I arrived there were only a... More
