Pay a visit to Beomeosa Temple on the side of Geumjeongsan mountain, known for its picturesque forest surroundings. Built in 678 CE, the temple complex was destroyed during the Japanese invasions, but rebuilt in the later centuries. Enjoy the relaxing, but strenuous hike up to the temple, where you can relish the spiritual atmosphere, well-maintained gardens, and the scenic mountainside setting, especially picturesque in late spring when the wisterias bloom. Continue the hike to the top of the mountain to see a legendary well where, according to local tales, a fish came down from the heavens to swim, giving the temple its name.

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.
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.
