This really was a lovely, serene experience where you leave the city and end up feeling like you are in the mountains with lines of monks and nuns going about their daily routines. Really beautiful.

Sitting on a hill north of the city, the access to this temple is not easy. We took a cab here. The low gates of this temple are unique...at least for us as we have not seen any others of similar design. Guess I would recommend a visit here if one have a morning to spare.

This temple is by far one of the more interesting and serene ones I have been to. Great activity for a sunny day. Also quite easy to get to, assuming you know how you're getting there. Best way is to take the Subway to Beomeosa station and take exit 5. Once out, turn around, you'll see a sign pointing to... More

Get the fresh air and worth a visit. It's a bit far away from the Busan central, but if you're staying in Busan for longer period, you can try to visit Beomeosa Temple. Please try to get the taxi for going up when you arrive to the metro station. Going down from the temple (downhill) is walkable but it will... More

This is one of my favorite spots in Busan. I was there in end of April during my second visit to Busan and was gladly surprised by this quiet temple with little tourist but lots of traditional Korean colors and architecture. I also walked up the trail in the back a bit and had the temple lunch (very simple but... More

Beomeosa is a beautiful experience on so many levels. The architecture and artwork are stunning, the accessible trails and hermitages provide spectacular views, and the monks and staff are truly kind and generous. Spend some time in meditation for a soul satisfying visit. The temple is truly a worthwhile stop for any visitor. It's easy to access via train and... More

After exit beomeosa temple st, if you go with 3-4 ppl better use taxi and drop at parking. And you can use stair to downhill. If like hiking maybe can prepare to hiking beside temple there a path to hiking.. prepare for bus stop no 90 take a long time to down

Situated on a tall hill, this temple is best accessed with a vehicle unless you have good fitness and a lot of time to walk uphill. Easily accessed by bus from the bus terminal at the nearby town. The hike starts from where the bus stops and you will be greeted by soothing greenery and ancient architecture. This temple is... More

Had some extra time on a business trip and the company we were visiting took us here to see the temple. Just the ride up the mountain in the car was outstanding. Compared to other historic sites I have visited, the tourist traffic was very moderate, so it made for a pleasant walk around the grounds. The setting is very... More

It is a ideal place for cultural and historical lovers. You can see many locals praying together with monks. Free entry fee.
