We took the subway from Busan Centre 1300W and then walked 400m to the bus which stops at the entrance 600W. Free entrance. The trees, temples and walks are pleasant, shaded (in the most part) with stunning temples and gates. Note that several temples do NOT allow photos inside (so take a 270-400mm) - see also the Fortress 1km up... More

A a temple, there isn't anything really special about Beomeosa Temple. There are a few interesting structures, but that's about it. However, the location of the temple itself makes for many good photo opportunities, as the surrounding scenery is nothing short of breathtaking. You may think then that it's a good idea to hike up to Beomeosa Temple, but take... More

We went in winter (February) when it's fairly cold - even colder in the mountains, and we weren't impressed. Only when we went back in Autumn with the foliage all around and warmer temps did we truly appreciate this Temple.

I visited this place because of its wonderful view. It was a pleasant visit to this temple as it was surrounded by beautiful "nature". On your visit, you will pass by a very nice river cascading down the slopes of the hill. Its a great way to trek along the slopes going to the temple. The temple in itself is... More

The temple and it's surrounding buildings is quite breath taking, It is worth a look and quite picturesque. You can easily spend a few hours just checking out all the temples before you head up to the North gate of the Geumjung Mt. fortress. Only down side is the lack of english signs at times

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.
