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.
