Trip Planner: Asia / Indonesia / Bali / Buleleng / Historic Sites / Brahma Vihara Arama Buddhist Monastery
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.

Worth combining with a visit to the hot springs. Entrance is by donation. A very peaceful place to visit. Fantastic views as it's in the mountains. more »
This place is a magnificent buddhist temple. There is lots of beautiful sculptures to see. The plants around the temples are amazing. Very spiritual place, well worth to visit. more »
We enjoyed this temple and would give 5 stars except there is currently renovation work ongoing. Cost 400k for a driver from 10:00 - 16:00 great to combo with the hot springs nearby. more »
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.....
Beautifull place, fresh air, silence atmosphere, located in the hill. I've been many time to visit this place. Wonderful.
A great quiet place for someone who love to meditation. Om Budhaya Namaha 🙏
Contrary to other reviews, I found it below average and a bit kitsch compared to other Buddhist temples in Asia. The best thing about it was the ride coming from the north west from Banjar. A straight dipping road for 2km with beautiful traditional Balinese villages with very attractive architecture and landscaping.

Renovations going on but worth a look 5000 for bike parking and donations for sarong
