The Brahmavihara-Arama Temple

in perfspots •  last year  (edited)

We explored the Brahmavihara-Arama Temple in the north of Bali. This temple is also known under the name of Vihara Buddha Banjar. We where the only tourists exploring it at the time we arrived. The North is not as popular as the south but it has so many gems to offer. The Brahmavihara-Arama is a buddhist temple and is still in use as a meditation center.

How to get to the Brahmavihara-Arama Temple?

The Temple is situated in the North of Bali, Indonesia. It is built on a hill, overlooking the city of Banjar. The temple is actually not that easy to find so make sure to visit it with a guide or a driver who really knows how to get there. You can try it by yourself but driving with gps is recommended because there are no roadsigns showing the way up the hill to the temple.

Where to stay?

We stayed at a hotel close to the center of Ubud and not right in the jungle. There are tons of options. From Ubud we went on a tour to the temple.

What is special there?

Like i wrote before, this is not a very popular tourist spot. At the time we visited the temple there were only one or two other tourists visiting. The Buddhist buildings are very unique and the meditation rooms built in a simple and minimalistic design. The architecture is a bit Hinduism influenced because of the main religion in Bali. This place is really recommended if you are interested to learn more about Buddhism.

About Bali

Bali is one of the Islands in the southern part of Indonesia. Mostly there is tropical warm weather on the Island. The Island has an airport in the capital city of Denpasar which is situated in the South of Bali. The most beautiful month on Bali is September and the Rainy Season lasts from the end of november until the end of march. Most people speak balinese or indonesian on the island. We travelled Bali for a month. We landed in Denpasar in the south of Bali and went up to the north. We stayed in places like Nusa Dua, Canggu, Ubud and Pemuteran.

It’s so cool that you manage to find this hidden spot :D
You’re right, Buleleng and majority of north Bali is not developed enough for tourism, I kinda love that fact tho. Since south bali is so exploited, and seems that no stakeholders think about sustainability :(

Hey @gibic it might be because of the airport infrastructure leading the people to the south. im agree, sustainability is missing in some corners there...
the north was really amazing to explore, have you been there?

yeah, I've been to the north for a couple times: Gitgit waterfalls, menjangan island, lovina beach...ah, It's been more than 5 years I don't go to Bali :D

Found your post through Steemitworldmap and couldn't stay away from checking the whole article about the place you visited! :)

Hey Gabriela im glad it made you curious :D thanks for the visit.

I have never visited Bali and Asia in general. I like the Temple style of this region and probably Indonesia will be the first place I will visit.
