The place is too big, not able to roam around. Just make a brief stop over. Just like other temple. Maybe you will really appreciated the place, if you know its history.

A nice place to visit even though it does take time and effort to get there. There are some good hikes to do in this area, also the cemetery is very interesting.

Well worth the visit. I wish we had read more about it in advance or brought a guide. There was English on the signs but I wanted to learn much more. For example, why are the large colorful figures stepping on people?

You best bet is to get onto the Orange line metro and go to Beomeosa. Is the second to last stop on the line. From there you can catch a bus to the temple. Unfortunately i forget the bus number but good maps can help with it.
