Truly a stunning landscape and old temple with many origional sections. It is a bit out of the way up a mountain which makes it more dramatic. Not as crowded as the seaside temple and more interesting and larger. Definitely well worth the trip.

It is relatively easy to get to this temple. I would recommend around an hour to two hours to visit the temple. Add another hour for travel. There was some reconstruction works when i visited, but it still was a nice visit. Behind the temple there is a nice stream which consists of many lovely rocks. The scenery is beautiful,... More

It was a nice getaway after all the actions and shopping in the city. We didn't have enough time so we took the metro up to the bottom of the mountain and then took a taxi up to the top near the entrance of the temple. Although there were lots of visitors the site as a working temple was quiet... More

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.
