Buddhist faith had its own golden era in Bali; many Buddhist legacies can be found all over Bali and one of them is Buddhist temple at Kalibukbuk in Buleleng Regency. The Buddhist temple at Kalibukbuk consists of three stupas and dating back from 9th or 10th century AD. The biggest stupa has octagonal base and the other two smaller stupas have square base. The temple is situated 300 meter to the south from the road.

This Budhist temple was found in September 1994, when a farmer wanted to fix his old well. He found old bricks which were arranged in a formation to form a foundation of a building, he also found other artifacts such as reliefs, pottery, stupika and seal. The farmer reported his finding and since 1994 up to 2000, Bali’s Archeological Center had done some surveys and excavations in that site. This temple complex was buried under 1.5 meter deep, the researchers believe that this temple was buried by mud flood that happened in 1815. When the excavation was completed the researchers only found the foundation of the buildings while the other parts had been destroyed by the mud flood. The restoration of this temple took 15 years and completed on January 16, 2009.

This Buddhist temple shows that Buddhist faith has been a part of Bali’s culture and history. And now in Buleleng, Budhist faith lives harmoniously hand in hand with Hindu and other religious faiths.
