Introduction

Hongbeopsa Temple is located in Geumjeong dugu-dong, Busan and is known for the largest bronze Amida Buddha Statue in Korea at 21 meters. Surrounded by Cheolmasan Mountain and Geumjeongsan Mountain, a beautiful scenery stretching out to Suyonggang River makes one feel as if you were in Yeonhwajang, an ideal world in Buddhism that is filled with lotus flowers.

The temple has training rooms for visitors to practice meditation as well as a bust statue of Gandhi, donated by the Government of India to celebrate the 40th anniversary of diplomatic relationship between Korea and India. The temple has a wealth of attractions that cannot be seen in other temples of Korea such as huge statue of Buddha, India Cultural Center, Jeokmyeolbogung Palace, and beautiful gardens, luring an increasing number of tourists every year.
