Located at Seokmodo Island, Bomunsa Temple was built by the Great Buddhist priest, Hoejong Daesa. While entering the temple, you will see a 600 year old Chinese juniper tree. Behind the tree, a small Buddhist temple is there within a cave. Though the entrance might seem to be small, the room inside the temple is quite huge. At the backside of the temple, you will see other attractions like a 10 m high Ma-aeseokbuljwasang and the Nunseop Rock. Beside this, you get a beautiful view of the West Sea from the temple. People say, Seokmodo island is famous for the sunset and the seashore.

  • 석모도에 위치한 사찰로 석모대교가 생기면서 방문하기가 훨씬 수월해졌음. 입구에서 대웅전까지, 그리고 대웅전에서 눈썹바위까지 비교적 가파른 경사라서 연령 및 체력의 차이에 의해 힘들게 느껴질 수 있음. 하지만 눈썹바위에서 내려다 보이는 경치가 장관이라 힘든만큼의 값어치는 충분히 하고도 남음. 주경도 좋긴 하지만 개인적으로는 낙조시간을 추천함. 입구 주차장에 주차시 요금은 2,000원이며 입장료도 대인 기준 2,000원임.. .................(이하 보문사 소개글)........................ 635년(선덕여왕 4)에 회정(懷正)이 창건하였다고 하는데, 649년(진덕여왕 3)에 어부들이 불상과 나한 ·천진석상 22구(軀)를 바다에서 건져내어 천연석굴 안에 봉안함으로써 널리 알려지기 시작하였다. 입구에 3개의 홍예문을 설치하고 천연동굴 내에 반월형 좌대를 마련하고 탱주(撑柱)를 설치하였는데, 탱주 사이에 21개의 감실(龕室)이 있어 거기에 석불을 안치하였다. 이 석실은 지방유형문화재 제57호로 지정되어 있다. 또 1928년에는 절 뒤편 절벽에 높이 32척 너비 12척의 관음상을 새겼다. 이 마애석불좌상(磨崖石佛坐像)은 지방유형문화재 제65호로 지정되어 있다.
