Buddist Temple Banjar Singaraja

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. It well knows as Vihara Buddha Banjar, is the biggest Buddhist temple in Bali. It is located at a hilly area at Tegehe Village, Desa Banjar, Buleleng Regency about 22 km west of Singaraja City and 11 km from tourist spot Lovina.

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, allmost like a small version of the Borobudur in Java. In the temple you find references to the Borobudur.

Then after Buddhist adherents were getting more increasing then Brahmavihara Arama was finally built on such area of land; the area has been expanded in order to be able to build Borobudur Miniature that is located on the Southern part of the Brahmavihara Arama that has been built and opened.

Principally there are 5 complexes of buildings:

  • Upasatha Gara : located on the top of the hill on the west, is a comfortable and a quite place. On the wall there is relief of Buddha’s birth, and in the center there is Buddhist statue in the condition reaching the heaven. In religious and ritual activities this space is functioned as stabilizing the candidate of Monk, a stating stage to follow the next training. It was in this space the Monk said their oath.
