ViharaDharmayana is one of the five Buddhist temples in Bali and the only one in Kuta.Though Kuta is known for its vibrant nightlife and traffic frenzy, at this temple you’ll find absolute serenity. Just as any other Chinese Buddhist temple, the main colours are red and yellow, making for a very colourful worship place, one that was visited by the 14th Dalai Lama on his visit to Bali in 1982. The main building of the temple, the “baktisala”, features many rows of colourful lanterns, hanging from the ceiling that is supported by bright red pillars, wrapped by dragons. Other popular Chinese characters, such as lions and more dragons, can be found throughout the temple. In the smaller building, the “Dharmasala”, family prayers take place, and this is also where you’ll find a large wall painting of the largest Buddhist temple in the world; the Borobudur, on the neighbouring island of Java. When visiting the temple, please don’t wear your Bintang shirt, but follow Bali’s proper temple etiquette. You can take photos, but flashlights are not allowed.
