Unlike some of the most sought-after attractions in Busan, getting to Beomeosa isn’t as easy as pie. After all, it’s a little bit out of the way, and has a steep road up. But, make no mistake about it – Beomeosa is an enchanting attraction that you can’t afford to miss when in Busan. With its sweeping views, serene setting and wondrous carvings, it’s truly one of the most eye-catching and majestic temples in Korea. Additionally, there’s a sense of peace that fills your heart as you walk around the temple.

This is Busan's most renowned temple and one of the largest and most impressive in all of Korea. It is amongst a large Geumjeong mountain range at the end of town, great for hiking and exploring. There are a few temples and statues around and it takes a good half-day to explore the space. It is affiliated with the Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism.
It is worth looking into a "temple stay" if you have some time. They sometimes offer bilingual overnight stays at the temple where the monks in residence share their experience and lifestyle, as guests can immerse themselves into temple life and learn about living as a Buddhist for a weekend.

Located on the edge of the famous Mt. Geumjeongsan, Beomeosa Temple is worth the trip if you are hiking the mountain itself in particular, but if you are interested in spiritual sites and Buddhist Korean history I think this is a perfect spot. The temple has fascinating legends about it's "gold fish" that came from the clouds and it adds to the spiritual aura of the temple site. A beautiful temple that was built in the time of the Three kingdoms, it was renovated in the 1700s and is a perfect depiction of architecture and design during the Joseon Dynasty. There is no better way to spend a sunny afternoon in Busan.

On a mountainside outside of Busan's centre, this sylvan temple is one of South Korea's most atmospheric, ringed by green hills and offering some fine hikes on the ridges that surround it. The stepped design, with the complex laid out on different levels of the hillside, is quite picturesque.

It was founded in 676 A.D. and it features extensive grounds, murals, and Buddhist relics brought from China in the 4th century. I wasn’t very impressed with the temple. It was very touristy and I felt like all of these tours were disturbing the peace. I didn’t really want to take pictures and I thought our guide was being disrespectful with her microphone blaring. I did enjoy seeing the Buddha statues. It was pretty scenery since the leaves were just turning colors there.
