  • CY ( 18.10.20 ) I and my wife visited this temple for healing body and soul. This temple building was not bigger than I think, but the road to temple and the view at the temple was very beautiful...

  • I've been to Buseoksa Temple. It was nice to go there on weekdays because it was quiet. When I went to the weekend, it was a little noisy because there were so many people. The old buildings were beautifully harmonized with nature. I saw small animals there, too. How cute! The autumn leaves were so pretty... It was nice because it was cheap. But there weren't many restaurants there... If you come, I think you can pack some small snacks. And there are a few bugs when I go. It was a little hard to walk up the hill. But the scenery is that great!
  • Buseoksa Temple Buseoksa Temple gets its name from a large stone to the west of Buljeon Hall, that appears to be floating rather than supported by the stone beneath it. The most famous thing about Buseoksa Temple is the entrance. It's really pretty at sunset and it's good to go see autumn leaves.
  • Beautiful well maintained temple. Five National Treasures in the temple grounds. Beautiful view of the valley below.
  • I went there knowing the walk was going to be killer up many steep stairs, but it honestly wasn't as bad as I had heard. It was absolutely beautiful and the HUGE and MAGNIFICENT Buddha statue you get to see is truly a sight to see. If you come to yeongju try not to get a hotel by the yeongju station but closer to this temple. If not you can still make your way to the temple for cheap if you take a bus. It will just take a bit more time than a 30,000KW taxi drive. Make sure when you enter the temple you take off your shoes and no pictures! But honestly, you won't need a camera to remember the moment. There was a very kind lady working inside the temple who showed me the proper way to bow. She knew very basic English so it worked out well. She so gave me mala beads and a picture of Buddha. When you go stay there for a few hours and breath the fresh air. Don't just go to look but go to experience.
  • We've been to Buseoksa Temple several times but this was the first time I actually managed to reach the top. We might have to wait until our daughter is older to go again with her. It's a much slower climb with a toddler. Buseoksa Temple is approximately 30 minutes from 연주 초등학교 by car. We paid 3.000 won for parking and an additional 2.000 at the entrance to the temple. In 2018, my 64 year old mother accompanied me to Buseoksa Temple, we took some photos with the locals & bought a few souvenirs for her to take back home. Yesterday, I had the opportunity to go again & really embraced the beauty Fall had to offer. 📷 🍁🍂🌾🤩
