1. Re: Visiting Damanhur

I'm italian and living not far away from damanhur.

Having no sympathy for similar organizations I have difficulties deciding to visit the temples, and at the moment I did it not yet.

what can I do for you is give you a link


something like a virtual visit can be found here:


I hope that will help you... (but I suppose you already had these links.. )

Kiob has given you the basic web information to find Damanhur, I assume they have a shuttle service as its a bit off the beaten track.

I went there once to pick up some friends, who travel the world visiting spiritual places and who spent the night there, but they were very relieved when I came and rescued them! I understood why when I was waiting very peacefully by a big rock which looked like a nice place to meditate, and I was told by the staff to leave as I was disturbing the elemental spirits (funny I thought I was communicating with them). My overall impression was a tourist set-up.

I meant to add, if you are interested in spiritual places in Piedmont, the mountains and foothills have a lot to offer from Waldenisian communities along the Val di Susa, who were given refuge by tolerant Piedmontese government centuries ago, Pilgrim's hospels such as Abbaye San Michele (where they made the movie "Name of the Rose", many beautiful romanesque churches such as Abbaye Vezzolana, Sacred mountains such as Varallo, Orta and Crea, plus Turin which has a reputation in some quarters as a city of magic (Nietsche and Nostrodamus lived here) as well as the (in)famous Shroud of Turin.

Hi Damanhur is worth visiting only if you can visit their underground temple (which I heard is amazing...). Howver, to do that, you have to make a sort of reservation

5. Re: Visiting Damanhur

Hi recent allegations have come out against Damanhur. People are claiming it's a cult where financial fraud is involved, and sex abuse. Here is a link check it out and decide for yourselves.
