The Bali Botanic Garden (Indonesian: Kebun Raya Bali) is the largest botanic garden in Indonesia and is located in the mountainous region of Bedugul, central Bali, around 90 minutes drive north of Denpasar. The Garden was established on 15 July 1959 and is situated around 1300 metres above sea level overlooking Bratan Lake and the Ulun Danu Temple on the slopes of Tapak Hill. The Garden is a center for botanical research, conservation, education, and recreation. It is operated by the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI).

The Garden has an area of 157.5 hectares (389 acres) and daytime temperatures range from 17 – 25 °C and 10 – 15 °C at night. The humidity averages around 70-90%.

The Garden contains more than 21,000 living specimens belonging to 2,400 species, representing various species from mountainous areas of eastern Indonesia: Bali, Nusa Tenggara, Sulawesi, Maluku, and Papua. In addition, its herbarium contains 10,000 preserved plant specimens ranging from algae to flowering plants.

Apart from plant collections that include orchids, ferns, cacti, and carnivorous plants, there is also a traditional Balinese-style guesthouse that functions as a guest house for visitors. One of the world’s largest displays of begonias is also on display in the conservatory building.

The Bali Botanic Garden was first established on 15 July 1959 by Indonesia’s first president, Sukarno. The Garden was first known as the Eka Karya Botanic Garden, where “Eka” means first while “Karya” means creation in the Balinese language, referring to the garden’s status as the first Indonesian botanic garden to be established after independence.

It was originally intended that The Bali Botanic Garden specialize in the cultivation of conifer plants (non-flowering seed plants, or Gymnosperms) and as a place for recreation. The garden accommodates scientific, cultural, and recreational activities for visitors.

Development of the garden stopped in 1965 due to political instability and was only reopened on 30 April 1975. When the garden became operational once again, its area was expanded to 129.2 hectares. It also added a new function for ex-situ conservation of plants from the mountainous region of eastern Indonesia.

In 2001 the land area of the Garden was expanded to 157.5 hectares. Wikipedia

Aventuras de um garoto nada comum

Hey me chamo Gustavo e aqui compartilho alguns momentos da minha vida. Sou um garoto tranquilo, sem nada a declarar, sempre na minha, talvez eu seja egoísta, de poucos amigos, mas com muita história p'ra contar sou reservado, louco, um pouco tímido e meio paradão, enfim continuo aqui, sentadinho no sofá sendo um garoto chato, preguiçoso e dorminhoco. *Para acesso aos post com senha fale comigo que te direi qual é* |BJS DE LUZ| E-mail: gustavosimthcooper@gmail.com
