Visited as part of a tour while doing a Princess Cruise. The walk up the hill and the bridge was amazing. Then when reaching the entry Gates the view of the Temple and the Stone Pagodas made the walk worth while. The only problem we experienced was the heavy rain which fell while we were visiting. It made the walk... More

A small temple. Nice if your first time. But will not visit again since nothing particular.

Is up the mountain. The scenery is nice. The structure of the temple is interesting too. A quiet temple compared to other tourist attractions. Recommended.

Take Metro subway to Beomosa station. Follow signs until you reach street level. From here, follow the mantly hikers going the same way up the hill. You will reach the bus terminus area. Take bus 90 which costs w1300 one way. I walked back down from the temple, you can do that without getting lost if your sense of direction... More

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

this is a great temple, very easy to reach from the center of busan thanks to the efficient subway,u need to catch another bus till the top of the temple though. this temple is amazing, peaceful, people come here to meditate more than praying, at least this has been our impression very recommend ps this temple is free of charge

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
