This temple is very close to Haeundae Beach and we got here via the City tour bus (hop on, hop off). The location on the coastline is stunning and it is best to come early because it gets very crowded. There are a few vedors...More

I have been there three times and there is a market before entering the main entrance of the temple. You can try some local street food there as well. You can feel the calmness when you visit the temple.

I have visited several temples in Korea, but this is by far one of my favorite ones. Unlike other temples that are located up in the mountains, this one is seaside. It's a bit of a trip from the main areas of Busan, but I...More

地下鉄海雲台駅からバス(2コース有り)約40分くらいで海東龍宮寺の入り口に到着。坂を上って約5分くらいしましたら駐車場やお店が見えてきます。お寺の入り口近くまではお店が有ります。十二支の像や観音様の像もあります。通常は左側の入り口から階段(108段)を降りて行くらしいですが、お正月で観光客が多くて私たちのときは右側の出口の方から下り坂を降りていきました。すごい人でした。海岸(岩山)にある景色のいい場所と黄金の像があって縁起がいいと思いました。 I thought that there is a scenic place in the coast (rocky mountain) and a statue of gold and it is good luck.

The temple and its surroundings were very well maintained, clean and tidy. Interesting figurines and statues but since the descriptions/plaques are in Korean, we have no comprehension of what the history or background of these status are about....

This temple is a nice stroll from the Fisheries Center, where the bus lets you get off. You can see people diving for seafood off the rocks. Probably one of the more interesting temples I've been to.

I'd also recommend the City Bus has 3 or 4 routes and take you to many spots along the way - hop on hop off. It's about 12,000 wan for the day ticket.
