mini Borobudur
Nov 2019
it was the second time i visited here, last year i revisited it in November.cuz the first time i missed the borobudur style temple complex,so this time i tell myself i wont miss it again.though not big compare to the real Borobudur,this mini version of Borobudur still amazing.i took some pics of it,and had some good time here.there are some devotees doing meditation or religious activities,so pls keep quiet when you visit here.when i go inside this Buddhist monastery.i felt peacefully.it is a charming religious place.for those who interested in religions, especially religion other than Hinduism in Bali, this place worth a visit. so when you travelling to West Bali,you can have a look here.

Stunningly beautiful, scerene and quiet
Feb 2020
Loved this majestic monastery complex, perched high up in the hills. Partly damaged by earthquakes in the mid '70's, it is now part sparkly new and pristine, and part comfortably old and worn. Part of the new additions include a representation of Buddha under a Bodhe tree, and 2 pagodas destroyed by the earthquake. You can stay here and attend classes. A meditation class was in progress the day we visited, which meant the vibe was wonderfully quiet and respectful. Magical place. I loved it.

Stunning Buddhist Monastery
Dec 2019
We travelled here after an hour or so swimming in the public swimming baths, Holy Hot Springs. It was a mere 20,000 Ruplah and being female was provided with a Sarong, my little boy wanted to wear one too and they allowed him to join in! This was my first temple and it was breathtaking, there looked to be a school trip and the children all smiled politely and said 'Hello' in English. There were English translations readily available on description boards and it's so far removed from a Christian Church that you immediatedly feel a sense of culture. We travelled from Kubutambahan and had a great day out!

Must see in North Bali!
Dec 2019 • Family
We had a great trip to this Temple. Highly recommend when visiting North Bali. A Buddhist Monk was on site during our visit so we were asked to respectful by remaining quiet and there were several individuals in the middle of meditation during our visit which made our experience that much more interesting. We learned a great deal while on site and took some amazing photos.

Climb up lots of stairs but in the end you found an amazing setting! Peaceful and quiet. You must have to get the traditional garment to go inside the monastery.

Be prepared for a lot of stairs! Beautiful garden setting that is very quiet. After paying and having a sarong tied around your waist, you enter the monastery where we were greeted by an attendant that toured us through the facility and offered to take photos with our phones. He had much great information about the monastery itself and the Buddhist religion. It was a great way to spend 60-90 minutes in a beautiful setting.

A peaceful visit to a beautiful space
Oct 2018
I visited Brahma Vihara Arama Buddhist Monastery during the afternoon. There were very few visitors, so I almost had the site to myself. There has been a lot of renovation going on with some still ongoing. This is a beautiful location and the building are being beautifully cared for. I really enjoyed my time here and was able to meditate in complete tranquility. Highly recommended.

If your looking for a good place for prayer or meditation this is the place to visit. Close to Lovina. Also you can visit the Hot Springs close by.
