Very picturesque surroundings. Exotic for European buildings. Slightly crowdly place. One big drawback is lack of English descriptions or guides, so it is difficult to find meaning of this arrangement.

I was pleasantly surprized by the size and beauty of this temple. It was quite a walk around the temple, so you need to wear comfy shoes. Main buildings are nice but I enjoyed little pagodas, bamboo bushes, and old walls with moss in the higher side of the temple. I felt as if I were walking in the middle... More

Beomeosa Temple Pronounced as Bomosa. It is an old temple in the mountain that attracts lot of people especially the locals during weekend. Worth a visit. If you are game enough, you can follow the trails for some mountain trekking. I just want to share with you how to reach the place. First, take subway and alight at Beomeosa Station.... More

Take the Oncheongung cable car to the top of the mountain. Then go on a super hike for nearly 8km along the top of the mountain ridge. Enjoy a view of the sea and the city below the whole way. Lots of amazing places to eat with open air restaurants. Follow signs, and you can end your hike in Beomosa... More

Wandered around one beautiful fall afternoon. It's old, but still in use. There were a lot of students there and apparently they have weekend and week-long experience Buddhism

We took the metro to the Beomeosa stop and then a taxi to the temple. There is a bus, which we took down from the temple. You can walk to it but it is an uphill walk. Once you get to the temple, it is in the mountains, with a lovely stream running through it. Lots of old and restored... More

Please wear good walking shoes or even hiking type shoes. The first set of temples have placards explaining the history. You can even sign up in advance to stay in the temple as a meditation retreat. There is a path off to the far left of the temple that takes you up a hill/mountain called the sea of rocks that... More

First time in Korea, and we loved the markets and street food, but we also wanted to see the historical side of Busan. As people said, definitely worth the visit! We decided to walk from Beomeosa station after seeing the "3km" sign. We had no idea it would be a hike up (we are not seasoned hikers) It was drizzling... More
