The Temple of Good Will (TGW) is an ecumenical monument located in Brazil's capital. It was conceived and built by Jose de Paiva Netto, President of the Legion of Good Will (LBV), who inaugurated it in October 1989. Every year it receives more than one million pilgrims, making it the most visited place in the city, according to official data from the State Secretariat of Tourism of the Federal District (SETUR). Acclaimed by the people as one of the Seven Wonders of Brasilia, the TGW is on the official list of monuments for tourists to visit during the 2014 FIFA World Cup. It is part of the Legion of Good Will's Ecumenical Complex, together with the World Parliament of Ecumenical Fraternity, the LBV's ParlaMundi.

This temple is an interesting place to be visited. It has plenty of space and is a good option for relaxation. There is a library, a cafeteria and it can be easily reached by public transport or on foot depending on where you are.

Short trip from the city center. It is worth the visit if you want to have some meditation time and to refill your spirit, whatever religion or belief you have.

This is a wonderful complex for the spiritually minded. If you are spiritually minded, you may be by the end of your visit. The Temple itself is very inspiring and really must be experienced.

Templo da Boa Vontade (Goodwill Temple), in spite of what its name suggests, has no link to any religion. It is allegedly a place of meditation and introspection. Beautiful architecture.

There is a black and white spriral on the floor which one has to slowly follow to the centre and back. Once arriving in then centre looking up, one will see the biggest and... More
