This is the largest Buddhist monastery in Bali. Located on the slopes of a mountain in the village of Banjar, approximately one and a half kilometers from the hot springs in Banjar.
The monastery opened in 1970 and occupies about a hectare of space.
There are meditation rooms, a library, a beautiful garden, and a model of the Borobudur temple located on Java.
One of the staircases leading to the temple greets guests with inscriptions on the steps representing stages of the path to enlightenment.
In the eastern part of the complex is the Dharmasala - a studio where visitors pray and listen to lectures. Just a couple of minutes' walk away is a garden with a tree symbolizing the Bodhi tree with an image of Buddha seated beneath it and paintings depicting the path to Nirvana.
This monastery is a place for Buddhist pilgrims to meditate when they celebrate Vesak Day. Brahma Vihara Arama looks particularly beautiful on festival days.
If you plan to visit the monastery, please ensure appropriate attire that covers the shoulders and legs down to the ankles. Visitors are provided with sarongs and belts at the entrance to the monastery complex.
