Happened to visit on Buddha’s birthday! Of course that meant crowds but also a once a year opportunity to see the temple fully dressed! See the accompanying pictures - it was a great experience. Would recommend taking a taxi from the Haeundae metro - this...More

A rather unique temple next to the sea. Crowded with many tourists and locals. Parking was full even though there is a huge car park outside the entrance. Quite a fun place to visit. With a wishing pool, statues of 12 Chinese horoscope, nice temple...More

A nice photogenic temple by the sea. Lots of interesting things to look at and many different kinds of photo ops. But long lines on the Sunday we went; also it can get very windy even in May. It would be better and less hectic...More

The temple is beautiful. It has a beautiful view and great for pictures. There really is not anything else to do around there. It was about 1:30 on bus to get there from Busan. And we spent around 30 min there and that’s because there...More

Besides the lovely location near the sea, the temple is by far the less attractive I've ever seen... kitchy and overrated. If you have already seen a lot of temples you can skip this one.

It's a bus ride away from Haeundae Station. I felt like the journey to get there by bus and walking in (it's quite a distance) took longer than our actual visit at the Temple. It was not that crowded when we went. The temple itself...More

You may take a bus from Haeundae station to reach there and climb a hill, and a lot of steps. The location is nice, the temple as well. However it is very crowded, and looks more like a picnic place.

The temple is old enough to respect. Personally please don't throw coins to those poor turtles! I don't think you would like someone throwing you coins or others right? Nothing more special! Except you like the many steps........

Although it might seem out if the way, this temple is worth a visit. After leaving in Korea for months, and visiting many temples, this one was by far my favourite as it was situated by the water.

We went there using the BLUE LINE train where the station is near BEXCO. Going back, we rode bus # 181. There are plenty of public transpo options going there. Download the NAVER app. Everything is there.
