This temple is historic and a good temple but not great in my opinion. However, it is worth a visit because you can combine it with some great hiking. I would give the temple 4 stars but with the nearby hiking, it gets 5 stars! It can be reached by metro + bus (or affordable taxi ride). Bring food before... More

We mainly chose this tour off of the cruise as we did not want togo to cultural performances or cemeteries. After the fish market (which was interesting) off we went to the temple. The drive up was good, complete with shopping stop (and I quite like a shopping stop or you can treat it as a tea and toilet stop... More

The temples by themselves are already beautiful to see. I was lucky enough to visit them at a full moon night, joining the lights of the sculptures outside of the temples. They are located on a mountain which just made everything even more spectacular. It was such a magical, relaxing and incredible promenade that left unforgettable images on my mind.... More

My first visit in Busan and Beomeosa is in the top list of my "must see". It's quite cold on that day but weather is very nice. The temple has very long history, 1300 yrs old but I can't feel so much historical or something to reflect that long period. Maybe I didn't see the whole area. Btw, sth is... More

This is a beautiful Buddhist temple site with a series of gates. The site is remote and a good trek from Busan. Be prepared to walk from the parking lot or bus drop off. There are several hundred steps leading through the gates to the temple site. This is a local attraction and active temple, so prepare for crowds and... More

I agree with other people that it is a nice temple and in a nice location. It is a working temple and I felt awkward watching these people pray and practice their religion while tourist watched. Nice lanterns and serene area with monks in orange robes and all. Good day and glad I went to see the temple. Happy travels.

This temple is quiet and easily accessible by bus 90 from subway station. You will feel its peace and tranquility by going around its buildings that are intricately built. As you walk down to the area where you can have a free vegetarian lunch (if you don't mind simple dishes and washing your own plates), you will see lovely bamboos... More

A beautiful little temple, it is out of the City Center and is nice and quiet and relaxing. Great examples of historic Korean architecture and culture. It served as a great counterpoint to the ultramodern, high tech cities of Seoul and Busan. Spent a great afternoon here with a local friend and his family.
