Nice small temple. On your way to the North gate you must stop at the other temple. This one is beautiful, quiet, and it is not cloudy of people.

One of the ports on our recent Asia cruise was Busan, South Korea. We chose the tour to the Beomeosa Temple, and it was a good choice! The wooded grounds were peaceful, and provided a certain degree of isolation to the temple. Inside, Buddhists knelt on cushions before the various altars, and some had placed offerings of food and other... More

Very zen like place with many monks and nuns moving around. We were there early morning so it was nice and cool and air was clean. Very pleasant. Those who are Buddhists can say a few prayers there as you will see quite a few of Buddha figurines and Kuan Yin as well.

The most spiritual place we've visited during our 2 weeks in Korea. Location is beautiful, the buildings are amazing. I recommend visiting some of the hermitages adjacent to Beomosa. The trail to get to Geumgangam for example is very beautiful, all-rocky and the sound of the mountain-river going through the rocks is so relaxing. Beomosa offers temple stay too so... More

A temple on a rather isolated mountain - a perfect place for tranquility and a peaceful mind. That said, it was quite easy to reach the temple. You only have to take a bus from the underground station Beomeosa. The temple complex isn't too spread out, so you could see it without big problems. There weren't many people when we... More

This is a temple "complex" on the side of a mountain. The grounds are beautiful. This is a little bit to the north of the city but it was the highlight of my trip to Busan.

A nice temple, and one of the few older ones left in the country. Worth a trip. There is a city bus from the subway station to the temple entrance.

I went during sakura season, and i think i am a bit late for that. The view along the Temple still not let me down, with the peaceful buddha and the chanting. Take metro to the Beomesa station, go out E5 and hike up the hill, not the main road, the bus 90 is waiting at the bus station,1300 won... More

The temple has been rebuilt and is still under construction, so it was hard to really enjoy. Looks quite impressive already, though. I especially liked the stone work. Must be great to visit once it's ready.

This temple is a very impressive temple, and it is in amazing shape. Very well taken care of. The art, paintings and buildings are in amazing condition. You can see the way the temples were back in the day. I suggest taking the left side of going up the mountain (instead of taking the Bus90, you can take the Bus80... More
