Don't miss this one. It has all the flavors of history. The surrounding park is worth a visit as well.

We planned only to visit the temple, which is actually a complex of temples. Very picturesque, very historical and very interesting. The temple also offers a Temple Stay program where foreigners who are interested in Buddhism can spend the night at the temple and participate in temple activities. While we didn't do that this visit, I am very interested and... More

Breathtaking experience. Initially, we thought it would be only one temple, but it is a complex of temples. The original temple (Built in the 1600's) was in the center. No photographs were allowed to be taken inside this temple. This attractions is nestled in the mountainside and incredibly beautiful. If you are at Beomeosa Metro Station, turn left and walk...

It is a beautiful place to visit and definitely something you want to do when visiting Busan. I did not have the time (or energy) to go up the mountain but the hike must be quite pretty. Will do next time. Reviews below are quite accurate. In addition to all of that: arrive early. Getting there on public transportation is... More

The winding road up the mountain is a perfect preview of what is at the top. The temple complex consists of several buildings all with beautiful and intricate woodwork and decorative painting on all walls and ceilings. We had a great guide who explained everything to us. In the surrounding heavily wooded grounds were full of Sunday picnicking families.

Beomeosa Temple is a hidden gem, nestled in a forested area with a lovely view of the surrounding mountains. There are several halls where people pray daily, and more halls under construction. You are able to observe daily prayers in each of the halls, but asked not to photograph within a hall. Monks also reside here. WARNING: To reach Beomeosa... More

I had the chance to visit the temple during the fastival when plentiful of paper lanterns had been hung all around. That made huge impression. I could also participate evening prayers. In the main building the monk was rythming the mantra and people were repeating. That was incredibly peace making experience. The walk along beautiful gardens was also relaxing. To... More

The temple complex was great. The place was serene. Good place to relax and free you mind from stress brought about by your daily routine. If you are commuting you can reach the place by taking the rail to Nopo. Get-off at Beomeosa Station (station just before Nopo). Take exit 7 and walk towards the west on the main street... More

A beautiful temple in the mountains which seem a world away from the bustling city just below. My only complaint would be that the large amount of building work that was taking place slightly destroyed the calming ambience.
