The name would already tell what the attraction is. Direction: .. Beomeosa Station .. Exit 5 or 7 .. There is a road between the two exits. Walk along the road to find a bus stop (Samsin Bus Stop) .. Take bus 90

Enjoyed the tranquil and peaceful atmosphere. Saw many people hiking up to the temple. Notice a temple stay facility and nature trails around. Whole place decorated with colourful lanterns as Buddha's birthday on 22 May. Would think it is a good place for meditation retreat....More

Take subway no.1 and get off at Pomosa(Exit no7) and take a bus . A temple in the mountain so the atmosphere is good. Temples were not so old but was beautiful decorated when we visited due to Budha birthday celebration.

Yes there is a climb from the bus and make sure you have clear directions so you do not take the road to the right and miss the entire temple area.

Hi, I'm not really sure if they're open during Chuseok, you may try to call 1330 from Skype it's free of charge. I've called from Indonesia and it's work well.
