You can take the metro to Beomeosa station. Take exit 5 or 7. Walk up the road between the two exits for about 10 min and... More

This temple is HUGE! There are various things to see here. There's a bus you can take, but then you have to walk, UP!!! I was wicked tired after visiting this temple, but it was worth it. We went on a weekday and it was not crowded at all. There was a very nice volunteer there that told us about... More

Nice serene temple in the mountains, nice view of autumn colors of nearby hills. Only downside is that Beomeosa is too popular. The crowd during a weekday is not considered high, yet it still distrupts the serenity. Can imagine the weekend crowd, Directions: L1 Beomeosa Station, Exit 5 or 7. Will see sign “梵鱼寺, 3km” (in Korean, Chinese & English)... More

You can do a full 6 hours hike or a bus ride to the temple. I highly suggest a bus ride, because it's gorgeous and you can see the whole Busan from it. The temple itself is ok, nice afternoon visit ;)

A late afternoon visit in October sunshine shows the temple in a beautiful light. We were fortunate enough to meet a guide who was full of interesting historical and religious information. Well worth a visit.

If you are a big Korean drama fan, then this scene must be so familiar for you. All the ancient woodcraft, the monks and the building, now you get a chance to have a closer look while enjoy the scenery too.

One of the most peaceful place I have been to Situated high up the mountains, the view is magnificent, especially during autumn. Take a train to Beomeosa Temple station, the walk up hill to a bus station. Take bus 90 to Beomeosa Temple. The view is pretty great with the autumn leaves. The area is quiet and serine. However, the... More
