Beomeosa Review

First constructed in 678 AD, Beomeosa temple sits on a ridge of Kumjong-san mountain just on the outskirts of Busan, though it feels a world away from the bustling city below. This is one of Korea's most renowned Buddhist temple complexes and is a beautiful example of mid-Joseon Dynasty temple architecture. Beomeosa is a sizable temple so give yourself plenty of time to explore—the main hall houses the Seokgamoni Buddha and two bodhisattvas; there are seven royal palace wings, three gates, and a bell pavilion with a three-story pagoda and a lantern dating from the Shilla Dynasty. A free guided tour is available in English from the small office near the bus stop. Beomeosa also has a temple stay program if you care to spend the night. From Beomeosa station (exit 5) it's a five minute walk to the bus station where bus 90 will take the rest of the way.
