Crowded on the weekend but well worth it. I’m hoping to catch the sunrise one day. The best temple I’ve been to in Korea.

Popular really for something. Impressive sight inside and outside. When the delicate temple's architecture meets the impressive sight of its surrounding. Walking through the temple gives both refreshing feeling inside and outside for me.

The most beautiful temple I've ever seen. A truly beautiful place near the sea.

This is a unique temple to visit in Busan, in that it's located on the shoreline and creates a contrasting setting in compared to the typical mountain backdrop to most Korean temples. It was built in 1376 and has many beautiful points of interest to enjoy. There is a three story pagoda with four lions, the main sanctuary, Yongwangdang Shrine and Gulbeop Buddhist Sanctum which is enclosed in a cave. There are also 108 steps with stone lanterns along the way, making a picturesque view along a spiritual and historic site.

With its magnificent seaside location, this Busan-area temple is another of South Korea's most memorable. Reaching the complex from the city centre is a bit of a trip, but the sight of the temple buildings fronted by crashing waves is well worth the effort. It's at its loveliest around early April, when colorful lanterns festoon the grounds in celebration of Buddha's birthday.

기장쪽의 관광지 중 하나인 해동용궁사. 바다 위에 떠있는 절 이라고도 불리울만큼 바다와 아주 가까이에 있는 절이다. 입장료는 따로 없고 사찰의 신비롭고 멋진 절경 덕에 관광객이 끊이지 않는 곳. 가족 나들이, 데이트 코스로도 좋다.
