Not difficult to get to but still relatively isolated, this was a beautiful and fascinating experience. We wish we got a tour to learn more about Korean Buddhism, which we found out is relatively unique. Awesome architecture and statues, it's still frequented by pious Buddhists who are there making supplications.

Pretty easy to get to. The temple is lovely and has a lot of gates and relaxing atmosphere. The large Buddha is really cool. I think there is a traditional tea ceremony in there but the line was too long for us.

Not wheelchair accessible and not much to see as part of it is under renovation. The surrounding park is good for hiking and is quite serene.

Yes, it was a long way from Haeundae, train to the last stop and then change to bus 90 (5 min walk from the train station to bus station). I wouldn't walk up the hill, it was a long way, I recommend to take the bus. A few houses/ temples were under construction when I was there but the area... More

The temple is high in the mountain and a long way from the city of Busan. It is very peaceful and really beautiful temple with many lanterns on both sides of the street lead to the entrance of the temple. We were lucky to be able to view the cherry blossoms around the temple. Highly recommended.

Beautiful temples and landscape, lots of bamboo and cherry blossoms during spring, also the lanterns give off a special vibe

Went here as part of a day tour on a super rainy day. It's quite peaceful and scenic--cherry blossoms nearby. Note: there is a restroom (toilet) near the parking lot, and there are no food stands like at Haedong Yonggungsa Temple. There is a souvenir shop.

This is a long way out the city but very easy to get to if you use the public transport! Don't be scared to use it and ask for help. You take the train to the LAST station and then the number 90 busy directly to the temple. Simple! If you don't plan to hike or walk around the ground... More

There're many ways to get there. We styed near Metro line 1 so it's very easy for us. We took line 1 and alighted at Beomeosa station, exit 5. Look for Beomeosa temple sign and go to that direction. After the exit of metro, turn right and walk back a bit to an uphill street, walk for 3 minutes to... More

Picturesque temple that sits on a mountain. Absolutely loved this place!! Went there on a nice cooling spring afternoon. Absolutely breathtaking views and tranquil ambience. A treat for those seeking a quiet respite away from the city. How to get there: Beomeosa station (orange line; found the subway Korea app to be very convenient throughout the trip), exit 5/7 (they're... More
