Quite strange since it mixes influences from Egyptians, Christianity, crystals, energy, and on and on... the architecture is ok and it is fun as an afternoon adventure to walk around the spiral and receive the "diamond energy".

It is a wonderful place to meditate. On saturdays they have church choir with keyboards. Everyday there is a library, art exibition, sculptures, paintings, and an ancient small egypt museum. You can also do some transcendent ritual with the enormous crystal on the roof of the church. You can park for free and also there is a self service restaurant.... More

Very interesting to visit. It has quite a mix of cultural influences, and is calming as advertised. The grouping of people considered important to the world was quite interesting. They also had a Brazilian ceramics exhibit there when I visited. I never really figured out what the goal of the place was.

We took the train and walked the few blocks but it was a bit difficult to locate as there are not a lot of signs, just look for the grass with a pyramid just beyond the hospital sector. It was so welcoming we were invited straight in to the temple where you are encouraged to walk the black then white... More

The temple exudes a vibe of good will and spirituality. All faiths and beliefs are respected and welcomed. Inside the temple which is below a seven sided pyramid like structure that holds a giant 21kg pure crystal, you can walk a spiral path of granite and reflect on your life. The temple is located a bit further away from the... More

The picture is wrong. The picture shown when I wrote the review is of the Cathedral (also worth visiting). At the Legião Temple they show the works of the founder of the Legião da Boa Vontade and a bit of their work on charity programs. Next to the temple there is a library and an auditorium. In the temple There... More

This is a place that people say is for meditation but actually you are not that encouraged to spend a long time there, since you have to walk the path that leads to the crystal and move on.

Anybody interested in triangular coned buildings should have a look at this (it is located at the rear of the main private hospital center at the south end of W3, and a stone´s throw from the huge city cemetery. Plenty of informatiion about the founder of this religious 'sect' at the main entrance. Slightly weird, etherial atmosphere on the inside,... More

The entrance leads to the main room, the pyramid of spiral floor under the largest pure crystal rock, welcoming the visitor to a recharging barefoot walk. Next room is an art gallery and right after a mineral water fountain. There's a library, a memorial for the founder of LBV (LGW), Mr. Paiva Netto, and more. A beautiful place for meditation... More
