“Not worth the trip”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

It took me at least 90 minutes to get to the temple on three different metro lines and a bus, and I was pretty disappointed with what I saw. Much of the temple at the moment is fenced off for construction or renovation works, so that was a particularly disappointing surprise. Furthermore, there were cars parked every where - directly around the seven-storey stone pagoda and along the pathways, ruining the solitude and aura of the place. The only upside was a special exhibition on lanterns.

“Hilltop solitude, perhaps...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

Great location with the temple buildings spread up the hillside among the trees. Very popular with locals, especially at weekends. 10 minutes by bus No 90 from Beomeosa station, Exit 5, and walk up the side street to the bus terminus.

“Lovely Buddhist Temple in the Hills above Busan”

Take a bus from Beomeosa Metro station to see this lovely temple. Wandering around and taking photos does not seem to offend anyone.
