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.

  • 一路上可以欣賞大自然的風景,偶爾還有美麗的楓葉陪伴。上到“山”後剛好師父在談經,信徒坐在溫暖的陽光底下聽經。四周都是山,在這裡逗留心情舒暢。 
  • Nice scenery to go during Autumn! Maples leaves can be seen there.. small temple though.. nothing much about temples.. main thing is scenery is nice! 
  • We went hiking and chose Beomeosa Temple as the starting point. It provides free simple vegetarian free lunch every afternoon. Taste is okay, but it is a good experience. Remember to wash your own bow...  more »

  • 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
