I’m not really sure why this temple is so underrated. To me, it’s a bit larger and more elaborate, compared to the other temples in the area. With its hillside location, the temple offers a soothing ambiance and a breathtaking overlooking view of the city. Likewise, this temple is surrounded beautifully by flowers, and is home to a mishmash of majestic carvings and statues.

I came here for my first Buddha's birthday in Korea, usually celebrated in May each year. It's still some of my fondest memories of Korea, and an inspiring place to watch people worship. Come during lunch time and you can participate in a free communal vegan lunch of typical Korea Buddhist fare (vegan bibimbap). During holidays it is decorated with lotus lanterns and an excellent opportunity for photography, especially at nighttime. It's located not to far from the Seomyeon district of downtown Busan, and it's one of my favourite temples in the city.
