  • Unusual stone carvings of Lord Buddha on the rock face here. They're not that old as they only date from the 1930's. I guess this is what some monk decided to do during the Great Depression...

  • Best thing we saw in Busan. Combine with the Geumjeongsanseong fortress South Gate if you want, also worthwhile. This is quite an uphill hike but worth it.

  • An incredibly unique temple nestled in the mountains with some great hiking trails that you can take to access. The intricate carvings are amazing to witness and it's worth it to come here if you are in Busan. The surroundings make it feel really serene with the greenery around.

Definitely well worth making the trip to see it although I found it a little hard to orient myself to Google Maps after I got out of the Subway at Mandeok Station. I don't know if it's my age or the app or probably a combination of both. I took a cab to the trail leading to temple. The driver was kind but ain't they all? It was a nice walk back down to the station and there is a trail part of the way.
