Buleleng, Brahma Vihara Ashrama

Buleleng, Brahma Vihara Ashrama, temple



The monastery is presided over by one of Bali’s few Buddhists monks, Bhikku Giri Rakhita, a Brahman from Banjar, now elderly but still formidably energetic. The ashram, set into a hillside a few miles inland from Banjar, is well signposted and welcomes visitors. The monastery a blend of Balinese and mainland Southeast Asian architecture, offers a stunning panorama down to the sea. Not far to the west of the monastery is the Banjar Tega Hot Springs. The key word for this little spa is modesty: in fees, in water temperature about 100 Fahrenheit and in proper attire for bathing.
