Buddhist Monastery and Temple, Brahmavihara Arama

(Pictures shot in 2006)
The Buddhist temple and Monastery in Banjar North Bali, near Lovina, is more then just a "tourist attraction". It is still used, and you can find groups of people staying in the Ashram nearby. The Buddhist temple is not a tourist trap, entrance is free, but donations are welcome. Even the sarongs you may need to enter the temple, you can use for free. The Buddhist temple is situated in the hills above Lovina and offers nice views.

In the 6th century Buddhist monks suppose to have landed and settled in the North of Bali, and the Hindu religion of Bali has a lot of Buddhist influence.

The terraced complex has a few praying rooms with golden Buddha's, and several Buddha statues in the garden. On the highest level of the complex you find a Stupa, almost like a small version of the Borobudur in Java. In the temple you find references to the Borobudur.
