Vihara Dharma Giri can be a great highlight on a scenic drive to Lovina in North Bali. The iconic part of this Vihara is a large white sleeping Buddha statue. It is among the top attractions of Pupuan, despite the village usually being renowned for its expanses of rice fields. At first, you will see the public courtyard where you can enjoy some refreshments. Up a flight of steps, you will find the 10-meter-long sleeping Buddha with all its magnificence. The statue is set against a backdrop of greenery from the serene gardens of the yard hand in hand with blue sky. The good news is, the entrance totally free. Even so, set aside some money to make a donation.

Perched on a slope of a hill, Brahmavira Arama Buddhist Temple and Monastery rise majestically overlooking a sea with a lush green hill as a background. The temple complex offers a wonderful hillside setting such as a brilliant orange tile roof. Which stands over an entrance gate guarded by two dragon statues with a bell tower in the corner of the middle courtyard. You have to climb up lots of stairs but in the end, you will find an amazing paradise! Tall pine trees, trimmed lawns, well-maintained flower gardens, and the high altitude all add up to a great sense of peace you can enjoy here.

This modern Chinese temple is nestled exactly at the north end of Benoa Port Highway. Even though it is called vihara, actually this place is worship for three religions, which are Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism. The temple has a feast of color with ornate dragons on the roof and the entrance pillar. The internal part and walls are beautifully decorated with elaborate vaulted ceilings, deities, paintings. Well worth the visit!

Such a peaceful Buddhist temple in the middle of hustle Denpasar! Once you step into the temple, you will be amazed by its soothing atmosphere with a blend of Balinese and Thai architecture. The courtyard is quite wide and beautiful. Apparently, this place is not only used as a place for worship, but also for other important events such as weddings. Note to be a reminder for dressing properly when entering this area, but do not worry they provide sarong for those who wear shorts.

Well, which one have you been visited?
