One of the most special temples in South Korea. Enormous Buddha statues. After you visit the main building, climb up the road (by foot or by car) to watch many more magnificent statues.

The temple is beautiful and the location is excellent, in the middle of the forest. Arriving to the temple you can take the no. 90 bus and it will take you right to the entrance. Returning from the temple, I recommend walking thru the forest...More

Becomes is a picturesque temple with nice walk in the forest and mountains and of course has a stream. Well worth a visit for anyone. As is the case so often in Korea many of the mountain walks and trails start from a temple

You may stop at Beomeosa train station and take bus 90 to the beomeosa Temple. Wear comfortable shoes as you need to walk a little, steep stairs. There's the area where they supply cold mountain water, located behind the temple.

Don't leave Busan without seeing this temple. Can be reached by travelling on the subway on the orange line to the stop with the same name (Beomeosa). Get out of the station (exits 5 or 7) and take the road uphill to the end where...More

With its setting in the hills above Busan, the temple is a great get away from the city crowds. It must be even more picturesque when the leaves change in the fall. Beomeosa is still an active, important temple. There is a peacefulness here in...More

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.
