Beomeosa Temple Reviews & Ratings

  • Beautiful temple site with historic and old items. The surrounding mountains, streams, forest areas are totally amazing. Not far from the subway station.

  • Pretty and the hike is refreshing. It's along the road though so don't expect a secluded hike. The temple is active so there will be people praying and services going on.

  • One of the most spectacular Buddhist temple sites I’ve ever been to. After going here I came back several times including participating in the temple-stay program where I learned more about the place. It is the main Zen meditation temple complex in Korea. It’s location on the mountain adds to its beauty and serenity.

  • Great temple to walk around, very beautiful when the lanterns are up. Hiking trails near by.

  • If you have the time to burn, walking to a temple always makes it feel more rewarding. Of course excellent company is important as well.
