This was a highlight of my trip. Every knock and cranny had something to see. As soon as you walk in you feel a sense of calm, it’s so very peaceful! Worth visiting if you are in Lovina!

We were married here in 2006, (a date which wasn’t an option when I wrote this review). It was an amazing experience! They had not performed a wedding there before, but the monk did an amazing job of making us and our family feel welcomed.

Not many Budhist temples on Bali. This one is one of few. Interesting, because you can notice Hindu influences. Quite an enormous estate. Nice.

A beautiful temple in incredible surroundings. This was the most peaceful stop on our travels around Bali. A different vibe from many of the other temples and plenty of quiet spots for contemplation.

This is the largest Buddhist monastery in Bali and located in Banjar, a picturesque thirty-minute drive from our hotel in Lovina. It is built on a hilltop with commanding 360 degrees views over the surrounding countryside. IDR25,000 (AUD $2.50) admission fee to view this fabulous temple complex with its awe-inspiring architecture, a combination of Buddhist and Hindu. There are many steps but decidedly worthy of the effort to view the sculpted and landscaped gardens, the Buddhist prayer areas and the many statues of various deities. We learnt that the upper-level temple area features a part replica of the Borobudur Temple and the Gateway to Heaven, the gardens also a highlight. Therre are many great attractions in Northern Bali, this temple complex is foremost.

Bali is an Eastern feast of religion. Everywhere there are temples and shrines, however the Buddhist Monastery was a place of incredible beauty. On a day trip visiting various places of religious significance this was enchanting. Typically modesty was encouraged with the sarongs supplied at the gate. The grounds were extensive and very well maintained. Be prepared for a lot of walking as they cover a considerable area with a lot of elevation. Within the grounds are a series of stupas , statues and pagodas.

We were guided by a Balinese, who spoke English very well and could tell us a lot about the history en symbolic importance of different parts of the tempel area. Very informing, better experience than just taking pictures.

It is a very beautiful Buddhist temple in the highland. There are not many tourists. There is a mini-Borobudur temple at the back of the temple.
Entrance ticket = IDR 50,000/person

This place is beautiful, we went here with a local who explained things to us. But I think you would be able to get a guide from the entrance.

Entrance fee 20k and well worth it.

i visited this place in 2019, this year when border reopened,i had a short trip to north bali in september,i came again.so it was another visit after the pandemic.actually it is not on my list.that day i check out of my hotel in lovina,and had a tour around north bali,i want to visit aling-aling waterfall,but suddenly,a heavy rain came,i cancelled, and chose to come here. luckily after twenty minutes, the rain stopped,i can take some good pics here. when i finished.i noticed there is a banner hung on the wall of the office,it said now they serve veggie and non veggie food. i want to have lunch,so i asked the staff there where can have vegetarian food,she said not at the office,turn left and walk about five minutes, there is a warung called pindras, they serve vegetarian food. so i went there. i ordered nasi goreng with sambal matah,ice blue tea and khinkali.it was surprised that they have georgian food.all are tasty,only the iced blue tea bland, i love khinkali,very delicious,its inner stuffing is pumpkin.anyway i found warung pindras not at TP list again,so left comment here.the monastery itself and the warung are worth a visit.
