The view of Panama without the Noise!

This is a very special place in Panama! The noise never reaches this area, and the people who take care of it are focused on their religious principles.

Always I enjoy to go to Bahai Temple. It´s a great place to walk around the gardens and breath a fresh and clean air.

My daughter and I visited this beautiful temple. Although it was a hot sunny day in Panama, it was like an oasis to arrive at this beautiful site. The breezes make this such a pleasant spot. The city views are breathtaking and loved the gardens. It is a very peaceful place and it is open to everyone. It is free... More

We took a taxi to get there. About $30 roundtrip but uber might be cheaper. Beautiful scenic views of the city. The people are lovely, inviting and friendly. Don't need to be a Baha'i to go. Sunday worship at 10 is wonderful.

it far away from the city, but you can get they from Los Andres metro station and take a bus to the Bahia Temple. Since it is far, you ge to enjoy some fresh air and relax. The people are really nice and kind!

It overlooks the whole city. It was breathtaking. There was a supply of Baha'i Prayer Books in many languages to borrow. It was beautiful in its simplicity.

not only that you have a real chance to meditate and be as spiritual as you may want but also have the opportunity to see Panama from the highest most beautiful place and get inspired

Beautiful building on a spectacular vista. The driveway entrance is difficult to find, but once you get to the top, you'll find it is worth it.

Lovely sacred and peaceful place to visit and meditate. One of the best overview of Panama City. Can be a bit tiresome to drive as the road is very windy and steep.

This was the first temple of the bahai faith build inLatin America, the landmark is excellent. Resting on top of a mountain, you get a beautiful view of the city. It's open until 6:00 pm and you should talk to the people in the house-museum to know the history of it. The building is copyrighted, so you can photograph it,... More
