YOU CAN WATCH THIS PRESENTATION IN MUSIC HERE (You have a link on the first slide): Thank you! Thanks to Nubia for introducing me to this place The Brahma Vihara Ashrama, Buddhist temple and Monastery in Banjar North Bali, near Lovina, is more than just a "tourist attraction". It is still used, and you can find groups of people staying in the Ashram nearby. 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.
