I turned up at prayer time and all the shrines were full of people and monks chanting along. So interesting to watch, but photos were soo off limits. You are nuts if you try and walk up - take the bus. Out of exit 5...More

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

This temple is a wonderful sight to see, but be warned it is spread out up a fairly steep hill with plenty of steps. There is a walkway that meanders up the side, but it too is fairly long. There are several small temples on...More

Just visited Beomeosa this past Sunday! Feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to do so. While Busan is known for its beaches, shopping and cool vibe, I was really excited to get to see this whole other side to the city. While the...More

Walking the way up to the temple is just a 'must do'. The temple is not very big in comparison with others, but the journey to get there is stunning. I stopped to take pictures almost the whole way.

This is a universe unto itself in the midst of the teeming city. Once you enter the gates you are in a quiet, peaceful space. Go soon to see the gorgeous lotus garden blooming and the white lanterns hung just overhead as you climb the...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.
