Vihara Dharmayana Kuta

"Kuta Beach is the place where it all happens in Bali. Yes there are a lot of vendors that appeal to you, but that's because this is the busiest boulevard! The place to surf, ideal for beginners. Nice shopping streets in the neighborhood and nice pop-up cafes on the beach. People with coolbox and some plastic chairs, very cozy!"

          The Vihara Dharmayana Kuta temple stands majestically as one of the few hidden cultural sights amidst Kuta between traffic. This ancient Chinese Buddhist temple was one of the Buddhist sites in Bali, which was attended by Tibetan 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, on his international tour in 1982. This temple is certainly important and worth to pay a visit.
The Vihara Dharm Ayana Kuta is just a kilometer east of the main coastal strip of Kuta.
 

The temple is often referred to by locals as "Kongco Leeng Gwan Kuta", or simply "Kongco Kuta". He is somewhat inconspicuously in a corner of the Jalan Blambangan, a one-way street, which is usually clogged with traffic. The bright red walls and murals of the temple it must be noted nevertheless easy. Especially if a hike is made by the city.

The Vihara Dharm Ayana Kuta dates from 1876. By visiting the temple you have a chance to get a glimpse into the rich history of Kuta. Despite his age, the temple is very well maintained, thanks to the generations of local devotees. These were mostly of Chinese descent, who frequently came to the temple to pray, and for other common activities such as Chinese New Year.

 

The main walls are provided with a complicated Far East-style architecture. They create a vibrant and distinctive style with no obvious signs of aging.
But you can also find an escape from hectic traffic. Temple courtyard gives you a soothing sense of peace and tranquillity. The incense altars makes a good contribution to the spiritual sphere.
This oasis consists of a main building, known as the "Baktisala", decorated with large round lanterns, which are bound by the edges of the roof. The roof is supported by huge red columns, which are decorated again with menacing dragons.
On the other side of Baktisala is a nice place to pray at the "Buddha with four faces." It is surrounded by small canal, where some turtles lying or sunbathing in the water on the stones, which is a pleasant sight.
Visitors are welcome, but there are rules that must be followed in wearing the right outfits and no shorts. There may be no pictures in the prayer room, or relics.
