Brahma Vihara Arama Buddhist Monastery, Buleleng
(4.6/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
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.
