I read the other similar questions, but it didn't work.

I created a block in a region and I want to display that same block on my custom page (inside the twig).

I'm using this code to load the block:

$block = \Drupal::entityTypeManager()->getStorage('block')->load('block_id');
$block_content =  \Drupal::entityTypeManager()->getViewBuilder('block')->view($block);

and I'm trying to build it like this:

$build['page'] = array(
      '#type' => 'inline_template',
      '#template' => $template,
      '#form' => $block_content,
return $build;

My twig file is like this:

    <div>{{ form }}</div>

But nothing is displayed... What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.

To make the form variable available in the Twig template you need to supply a context like follows.

$build['page'] = [
  '#type' => 'inline_template',
  '#template' => $template,
  '#context' => ['form' => $block_content],

Generally, I would recommend using custom #theme hook instead of an inline template.

Another way to render block within a template is using Twig Tweak module.

{{ drupal_entity('block', 'block_id') }}
