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.

  • The first time, I hiked up from Beomeosa station. As I approached the first gate up the stone ramp, I felt the hike made seeing the temple more fulfilling. The second time, I took bus 90 up for a weekend temple stay. I learnt more from listening to the guide on our temple walk than from reading all the information boards. During the temple stay, I was able to experience and see the temple at 5am before it opens to public. There was a sense of peace and tranquility. The golden glow from the main Buddha pavilion as the only light in the darkness felt otherworldly.
  • Beomeosa Temple is famous for its beautiful scenery. Visiting the temple in autumn is probably the most beautiful time of the year. Maple leaves bloom red. There are many hikers
