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.

  • Almost surreal. Just stunning. Go early morning as this is when the temple is most active. Just be respectful as locals are praying. There are also many people hiking. Get off at the metro...

  • Wonderful temple located in the forest and surrounding by mountain. It's a beautiful place to retire and mediate in the temple. Be careful taking pictures inside the place for medidate and praying is forbidden. There is also a place to buy souvenir
  • It is a beautiful temple nestled in the mountain. It's not big and easy to walk. I definitely reccomend visiting in the spring or fall as there isn't much shade.
