Pay a visit to Beomeosa Temple on the side of Geumjeongsan mountain, known for its picturesque forest surroundings. Built in 678 CE, the temple complex was destroyed during the Japanese invasions, but rebuilt in the later centuries. Enjoy the relaxing, but strenuous hike up to the temple, where you can relish the spiritual atmosphere, well-maintained gardens, and the scenic mountainside setting, especially picturesque in late spring when the wisterias bloom. Continue the hike to the top of the mountain to see a legendary well where, according to local tales, a fish came down from the heavens to swim, giving the temple its name.

紅葉がとても綺麗なお寺でした。梵魚寺駅からだとバス乗り場まで少し歩きますが、となりの老圃駅からだと隣接しているバスターミナルからすぐ乗れます。90番のバスで15分くらい、交通カードは降りる時もピッとしましょう。 more »The autumn leaves were very beautiful temples. If it is from The Udaiji Station, you can walk a little to the bus stop, but you can get on it right from the bus terminal adjacent to the next old station. Take the 90bus bus for about 15 minutes, and when you get off the traffic card, take it easy.
One of the most spectacular Buddhist temple sites I’ve ever been to. After going here I came back several times including participating in the temple-stay program where I learned more about the place. It is the main Zen meditation temple complex in Korea. It’s location on the mountain adds to its beauty and serenity.
If you have the time to burn, walking to a temple always makes it feel more rewarding. Of course excellent company is important as well.
