My enchanting neighbourhood

Brahma Vihara-Arama known more as "Banjar Buddhist Temple" is the biggest Buddhist temple in Bali. It was built in 1969 and completely finished in 1970 and formally functioned around 1973. It is located on a hill at Banjar Tegeha village, district of Banjar with serene and peaceful surrounding over viewing Lovina Beach. It is not far from the temple where Banjar hot spring is located and being not so far from Lovina Beach has made the hot spring one of interesting places in Buleleng regency even known more among visitors.

The building design and its ornaments reflects typical Balinese architecture but the dominant function as a Buddhist temple can be seen from the big "stupa", Buddha statues on certain places and other specific outfits and facilities.
