It was November 14th, and the hills were totally alive with fall color, which added to the beauty. Very colorful temples on site. Not worthy of a long visit.

Went up here on a very hot day but what I discovered which is quite popular here is picnics on the rocks by a little stream flowing from uphill. Very peaceful place and the view is gorgeous. Also if you love nature, you are literally in the middle of it. There's a bus from downtown bringing people to the Temple.... More

Nicely nestled in a mountain setting along a slope on the east side of Geumjeong Mountain is this temple with its buildings "modest" in their outward appearance (but then all temples in northeast Asia, meaning in Japan & Korea, are of such nature with "few exceptions" such as Fushimi-inari & Kinkakuji in Japan unlike their "glittering" counterparts in southeast Asia);...

We went hiking and chose Beomeosa Temple as the starting point. It provides free simple vegetarian free lunch every afternoon. Taste is okay, but it is a good experience. Remember to wash your own bowls before leaving

If you want to see something traditional place in Busan, which is mainly focused on modern and cutting edge culture, this place is totally worth it. Take a bus (1300won in cash for one way) from Beomeo-sa station and get off. You can see old and stunning view

Nice enough temple, but boring compared to its Japanese counterparts, and without the same serene surroundings. However, it is a very nice starting point for a walk, so drop by if you are in the area anyways.

I took subway to Beomosa station (Line 1). The direction to bus stop no. 90 is not visible after you exited from the station. Anyhow, I found the directional sign and the bus stop after looking to and fro the surrounding. Certain areas at the temple is undergoing restoration work. The scenery (with autumn foliage) is beautiful. There are hiking... More

'Need to be in rubber shoes to visit this place. To reach the area, uphill strides are required. It's quite far from the bus stop. I don't recommend going here if you are not in good shape or is incapable of long walks likewise to the elderly tourist. Take metroline 1, get off at Beomeosa Stn. Exit 5. After the... More
