Beomeosa, Busan

(4.4/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Pay a visit to Beomeosa on the side of Geumjeongsan mountain, known for its picturesque forest surroundings. Built in 678 CE, the temple complex was destroyed during the Japanese invasions, but rebuilt in the later centuries. Enjoy the relaxing, but strenuous hike up to the temple, where you can relish the spiritual atmosphere, well-maintained gardens, and the scenic mountainside setting, especially picturesque in late spring when the wisterias bloom. Continue the hike to the top of the mountain to see a legendary well where, according to local tales, a fish came down from the heavens to swim, giving the temple its name. Plan to visit Beomeosa during your Busan vacation using our convenient Busan family vacation planner.

  • It is cold in the rain, but feel the history of Korea, Japanese tourists have come, there was the power spot.

  • 在一個寒冷但陽光普照的冬天前往,先坐地鐵再轉90號公車,其實沒有想像中的遙遠,欣賞窗外一路上山的風景,很快就到了。 遊客不多幾乎都是當地的叔叔阿姨們爬山健行後,再到寺廟裡參拜。廟區很大,在這裡散步覺得很舒服心情也很平靜。  more »
  • In the top of the mountain. Scenery is beautiful. There is also a bus went by taxi. Running swirling taxi MOM but weak car because I was drunk.

  • Beautiful temple and garden surrounding the place. When we visited the space, some maintenance was going on. The place is easily accessible by public transport and there is no need to get a cab if you are in leisurely mood. It's good for people looking for some quiet time.
  • Beautiful and serene temple area.
  • Worth visiting while exploring remains of the fortress.
  • good
  • It's freakin great
