Beomeosa Temple ( 범어사 )

This temple is one of the best if not the best in Busan, very well kept, large structures and great detail. I would highly recommend coming here, schedule permitting.

Entrance to Beomosa
Attention to detail is spot on.
Prayer Room.
Quite a few hills/mountains surround Beomosa. Makes for great scenery.
A little alley at Beomeosa.
A few little ornaments.
Well kept temple 🙂

  1. Great post and photos.
    I’ve seen this place only in one of the CNN videos. I wish I could visit it on my next trip to Busan.

    Do you think this and Yonggung Temple are very similar? Or very different? I’ve only vivited Yonggung.

  2. One more question: any idea how much taxi can cost from the Cruise Terminal to Beomeosa Temple and to the Busan Station (as I was told, it is in front Arirang Hotel at the Busan Station Square) ?

    1. Hi Inna,

      Maybe around 20,000 – 30,000 Won depending on traffic.

      Beomeosa to Busan Station will be less.

      You could always catch Subway Line 1 from the port Station to Beomeosa as it is on the same line.

  3. Hi, i was just wondering… besides walking around and admiring the beautiful details of the temple, are we allowed to enter the temples? What else can we do there?

    1. Hi Joanne,

      You can enter the temples but obviously be mindful of other (some people might be praying/making offerings). If I go to temples I usually visit other close attractions to make the trip worth it. For Example, if you are visiting Beomeosa Temple, a trip to the PNU area would be recommended or the Dongnae Station area.
