Immerse yourself in tranquility at Brahma Vihara Arama Buddhist Monastery, an enormous Buddhist monastery perched hillside. The colorful temples first opened in 1970 and house several meditation rooms, libraries, and gardens. Explore the different areas of the monastery, linked by small footpaths lined with statues, lush gardens, and tall pines. If interested, inquire about participating in meditation here yourself. You'll need to wear a sarong or sash around the waist when you visit, but you can borrow one from the front desk at no charge. You'll get here easiest by car, along a scenic drive passing vineyards and a small community.

  • When you arrive, it seems not very spectacular, but as you go deeper you discover most beautiful corners. It is a bit far from everything, but it's worth

  • Amazing place, such good energy here. I couldn't help but sit down inside the stupa and meditate. Such amazing meditative energy!!
  • It's a Buddhist monastery in the mountains near Lovina in north Bali.It's a very beautiful place with silent atmosphere.No entrance fee required..you may give some donation but that is again not mandatory.You have to climb some steep stairs to reach the main temple ground from where one can have a good view of surroundings.Good place for meditation.Small car parking is available outside the temple.
  • Located in Banjar district, far away from the city crowded. Take a main road to Singaraja and you'll pass this monastery. Actually this Vihara is very authentic, almost all the statue is only Buddha and almost no incense smoke, very quiet and feel so sacred. No ticket entry, nothing make you spend money, only a donation if you like, put the donation in the box by yourself in the main area. The unique is, you can look for your faith with the bunch of stick inside the Pagoda. Shake until one stick jump out, then look for the number and match with the note......interesting. The landscape so nice and green, walking on the small path will lead you to a lot of nice sacred place. You can learn meditation in here, look for their schedule on their website. For me this is the most original Buddhist Vihara.....
  • It is very beautiful. Budha teaching whole world for peace & more knowledge in humen life for peace full living of humen being as well as all other nature birth on earth, sea & air
