The temple complex was great. The place was serene. Good place to relax and free you mind from stress brought about by your daily routine. If you are commuting you can reach the place by taking the rail to Nopo. Get-off at Beomeosa Station (station just before Nopo). Take exit 7 and walk towards the west on the main street... More

A beautiful temple in the mountains which seem a world away from the bustling city just below. My only complaint would be that the large amount of building work that was taking place slightly destroyed the calming ambience.

Beomeosa Temple itself isn't the most impressive, but it's the surroundings that makes this temple my favorite. To the left of the temple is a big rocky area that's great for picnics. And if you walk up the steps you'll get to the trail that runs along Mt. Geumjeong(san). To the right of the temple is another smaller temple with... More

Beomeosa and Haedong Yonggungsa, both has their own charm. Can't actually say which one is better, try to visit both if time permits. But note that it's a long winding road uphill. Note that both temples are far from each other. Go in the morning. It's most serene and quiet early in the morning.

Beomeosa temple reign over the top of the best tourist spots in Busan. It will be a visual treat for those who loves nature. The temple build beautifully in the traditional korean style. Along with the peaceful atmosphere of buddha temple, the surrounding mountains, creating a scene worth watching. Since the temple is situated on the slopes of Geumjeongsan, there... More

A working Buddhist temple with real monks! A calm place to visit, less touristy than Haedong. Get subway to Beomosa then walk to the bus depot and take number 90 bus. No tourist cafes/shops just go for the calming experience. Well worth walking back down the hill to Beomosa after rather than getting the bus as there are many small... More

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
