Beomeosa Temple

This magnificent temple, located on the slopes of Mt. Geumjeongsan, is one of Busan’s best-known sights. The history of Beomeosa, which is set against a striking mountain backdrop and surrounded by a scenic wooded area, dates back some 1,300 years. Constructed by a monk named Ui Sang in the 7th century, the original building was destroyed during the Japanese invasion of Korea in 1592, then reconstructed in 1713 into the three-story pagoda that stands today. The temple hosts tea ceremonies and Zen meditation workshops and serves Buddhist meals.
