Banjar Hot Spring
It is located at Banjar village, Banjar district, Buleleng regency, about 10 kilometers from the famous tourist resort Lovina or 24 kilometers from the closest city Singaraja. It is supposed to be able to cure disease. So it is flown to a cute swimming pool. Surrounded by unique village nature nears a Buddhist Temple.
The hot spring (banjar) are only a short distance west of the monastery. Eight carved sandstones Nagas spew water from a natural hot spring into the first bath, which then overflows (via the mouths of five more Nagas), into a second larger pool. In a third pool, water pours from three meters high spouts to give us a pummeling massage. The water slightly sulfur and pleasantly hot, so you might enjoy it more in the morning or the evening than in the heat of the day. We must wear a swimsuit and you should not use soap in the pool. The whole area is beautifully landscapes with lush tropical plants.
This meditation monastery gives you peace and tranquility that for some reason can not be found else where. As you wonder from building to building or just sit on green grass your inner self and mind starts to work and think in a mysterious way!
The Temple was built by Yayasan Girirakkhita, with the name of the foundation being taken from its founder Venerable Girirakkhita Maha Thera. Originally the temple was built at the top of the Hot Spring in Banjar Village but was relocated in 1970, renovation and additional construction brings the temple into splendid ore. The temple is painted with bright colorful decorations, a bright orange roof and beautiful Balinese decorative carvings. Throughout your visit you will see many Buddha statues, monuments, buildings and meditation points. Please feel free to touch but respect all. The vast meditation hall at the pinnacle of the complex is a must to see. Please ask permission to photograph first. The panoramic view that awaits you is second to none.
