This place is a magnificent buddhist temple. There is lots of beautiful sculptures to see. The plants around the temples are amazing. Very spiritual place, well worth to visit.

We enjoyed this temple and would give 5 stars except there is currently renovation work ongoing. Cost 400k for a driver from 10:00 - 16:00 great to combo with the hot springs nearby.

This temple is spread among several floors each more beautiful than the previous one. It start with a modest entry, then a pond, then a place with two Buddha, one in meditation pose, the other laid. One level upper is a little pagoda in which a beautiful representation of Buddha is lightened with eeriness. The last level is the main... More

This place is a must experience. Absolutely a wonderful place to meditate. I spent 60 minutes in meditation and totally lost myself. The energy was powerful and flowing. A gentle graceful energy that is tough to put into words. This is a spot to allow shifts to occur and resolve what is no longer working for you. A special place... More

I think this is definitely worth a visit. It just goes on and on, from one temple to another...up and up. We found the whole experience delightful and nourishing for the soul. If you are of a spiritual nature you will find this particularly enjoyable, especially being able to just sit and 'be' or light incense in front of the... More

Looks very impressive from the outside, but badly maintained and cheaply done inside. What a disappointment

Located in Banjar district, far away from the city crowded. Take a main road to Singaraja and you'll pass this monastery. Actually this Vihara is very authentic, almost all the statue is only Buddha and almost no incense smoke, very quiet and feel so sacred. No ticket entry, nothing make you spend money, only a donation if you like, put... More
