Starting from the idea of Prof. Ir. Kusnoto Setyodiwiryo, Director of the Institute for Nature Inquiry Centers who also serves as the Head of the Indonesian Botanical Gardens, and I Made Taman, then Head of the Institute for Preservation and Natural Preservation at that time who wished to establish a Botanical Garden outside Java, in this case Bali. The approach to the Regional Government of Bali began in 1955, until finally in 1958 the official authorities in Bali formally offered to the Institute for Natural Inquiry Centers to establish a Botanical Garden in Bali.
The Bali Botanic Garden is a unique place on the island of Bali that combines botanical research, plant preservation, education and recreation. Here you can relax while enjoying the beauty and peace while studying the benefits of plants for people’s lives. Even in a botanical garden you can see the plants of tropical rain forests and their bird life.
The Bali Botanic Garden is located in the Bedugul area in the middle of the island of Bali around 60 KM from Denpasar. Public transportation is not convenient because of irregular schedules, visitors are advised to use tourish buses, cars, taxis or motorbikes.
The Bali Botanic Garden is open every day from 08.00 – 18.00 WITA, except on the big day the Nyepi Botanical Gardens are closed.
