We visited here because many people gave good recommendation. The place a bit far, its about 30 minutes from Haeundae station by bus and then walk for 15 minutes. The temple was nice due to its location by the sea however not that big. It took us about one hour to go around all parts of the temple.

If you have limited amount of time and not really into temple, may be can skip this place.

I lived in Seoul for 18 months and Tokyo for 5 years.. I still get to both countries very routinely for work.

Please someone tell the Korean government that most tourists don't care about K-Pop, cosmetics, plastic surgery, or duty free shopping.

This place is a stunning temple set into the rocky cliffs above the ocean. It is on par with any of my favorite temples in Japan. It also isn't full of foreign tourists so maybe I shouldn't want to the government to advertise a place like this but it does deserve it!

This temple is right on the edge of a rocky shoreline. There are many steps to climb down and of course come back up and they are quite uneven as made of rocks so need good footware if wet. Quite complex so need a friend to show you where the steps lead to; where the best lookout is; and how to get down to the cave for prayer. Dragons are everywhere along with tiny little figurines which nobody could explain to me what they were? The chanting of the sutras can be heard wherever you are in the complex giving the spiritual feeling however there were so many people taking selfies that that feeling dissipated.

Quite long drive from Busan Station (1 hour or so),

So many street vendor on the way to the tenple, and track is so steep. Walking down is no problem, but on the way out (going upslope) thats another thing, as many elderly walk reallllly slow.

Temple is sitting on the cliff so it has a really nice view. Taking a picture? a bit hard, as too many tourist posing at tge same time, as u wouldnt get a clear panoramic picture, just bunch of selfie sticks.. :)
