From Haeundae subway Station, you can either take bus or taxi. I take bus 100 from Haeundae station to this temple. From the temple bus station, you need to walk around 600m to reach the entrance of the temple.

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.
