What people are saying:

This is Busan's most renowned temple and one of the largest and most impressive in all of Korea. It is amongst a large Geumjeong mountain range at the end of town, great for hiking and exploring. There are a few temples and statues around and it takes a good half-day to explore the space. It is affiliated with the Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism. It is worth looking into a "temple stay" if you have some time. They sometimes offer bilingual overnight stays at the temple where the monks in residence share their experience and lifestyle, as guests can immerse themselves into temple life and learn about living as a Buddhist for a weekend.
