We caught the subway and then a bus to the temple. Instructions on how to get there are on the Busan map. It is a lovely temple, and is the oldest in Korea. There is a temple stay there which can apparently be booked on their web site.

This temple complex is beautifully decorated, set into a mountain hillside amidst a gorgeous green forest. The buildings are elaborately painted and they contain many beautiful treasures and offerings. You can feel the sacred hush descend as you enter the grounds. They also offer a templestay option, which we did not get to try. However, we took a nice bus... More

A steep incline with many steps, but well worth the effort at the top. Beautiful gardens and panoramic scenery. Very peaceful you can feel the aura of the place. Highly recommended.

Went to the temple as part of an excursion with a university while on summer exchange. Food was vegetarian and basic, however, tasty and a good change from the canteen food I've been used to. We were the largest group to stay at the temple and we slept on the floor, however, thin foam mattresses, blankets and blow up pillows... More

Lots and lots of uphill walking but once we were there it was an awesome view of Busan. This was very educational and stunning to see.

it's far from Busan big city but the trip there is not difficult. Take the train to Beomeosa and then bus no 90 to the temple, dedicated. Or a taxi which cost 4000KRW up the hills from. Nice place and landscape but i went there during the summer so there was not much color to see. Like hiking, maybe a... More

The temple is up in the mountain, so we got up there by bus. I loved the view at the top as the surrounding areas around the temple were very mountainous and scenic. At the temple, we were greeted by an elderly volunteer guide who could speak very good English. His knowledge of the temple's history and his kind hospitality... More

Beomoesa is one of the most gorgeous temple sites - its very difficult to believe how close you are to the hustle and bustle of Busan proper here. I took the bus from the subway (exit 1, turn 180 degrees, follow the temple signs up the road - take bus 90) and it cost me 1300 ₩. The staff are... More
