Favorite temple in Busan

Beautiful, calm, serene temple. Very traditional with many beautiful hermitages you can take. They offer temple stays too which you should definitely look into!

This is a beautiful temple in Busan. You can get there via the metro and then a bus up the hill. A really calming oasis near the city with great detail in the building ornamentation. It also has the advantage of being on a hill side with a great view of woodland around. We enjoyed it despite a very rainy... More

This temple is easy to access and the views will not disappoint you. Built right on the ocean cliff, every direction you turn is photo-worthy.

The temple is easily accessible and it's not as crowded as other temples in South Korea. The atmosphere there is very calming and peaceful. You can also walk just around or take a longer walk up on the walls of former fortress. Recommended.

Whilst on a familiarisation trip to Busan a group of us visited the Beomeoda Temple. This is set within the mountains just outside Busan. Apart from the marvellous architecture of the Temple and its surrounding buildings and the religious significance, we were also struck by the calm and tranquility of the complex. Undoubtedly the highlight of our tour was an... More

It was a pleasant walk during autumn where the trees are all turning yellow. It may be a steep climb to the temple but the view is definitely worth it.

It is easy to go from the subway station. Catch the bus that is waiting a few hundred meters away. All the Korean temples we visited (and we visited numerous ones) seemed to lack the serenity of usual Buddhist temples in Japan, Mongolia, India, Myanmar. Beomosa is just a temple on top of a hill. Nothing special at all.

This is a truly beautiful place and well worth visit. There are quite a few levels to walk around and then many other tracks to explore. We were there in the rain, but it was still well worth the walking and scenery. The forest smelt so fresh and alive after the noisy city. A true escape from the madness.

This is a lovely place to go to get away from the bustle of the city. It is quite a long walk to the Grottoe but it's not steep and you get to enjoy the company of cheeky little chipmunks. The Buddha is serene and there are monks praying most of the time. Its a pretty walk and a lovely... More
