Brahmawihara Arama Buddhist Monastery

Type of place
This is the largest Buddhist monastery in Bali. It is located on the slopes of a mountain in the village of Banjar, about one and a half kilometers from the hot springs in Banjar.
The monastery opened in 1970. Its territory spans about a hectare. There are meditation rooms, a library, a beautiful garden, and a model of the Borobudur temple situated in Java.
One staircase leading to the temple greets visitors with inscriptions on the steps representing the stages of the path to enlightenment. In the eastern part of the complex, there is the Dharmasala, a studio for prayers and lectures. Just a couple minutes' walk away, there's a garden with a tree symbolizing the Bodhi tree, with an image of Buddha sitting under it and paintings depicting the path to Nirvana.
This monastery is a place for meditation for Buddhist pilgrims when they celebrate Vesak Day. During the holiday, Brahma Vihara Arama looks especially beautiful.
If you plan to visit the monastery, please wear appropriate clothing that covers your shoulders and legs down to your feet.
At the entrance to the monastery complex, visitors are provided with a sarong and a sash.
The entrance ticket to the monastery costs 20,000 rupiah.
