“A wonderful place to visit and the view is great”

We live here in Panama and this 'egg' shaped temple is really worth going to see - I would suggest the green season because the landscape is so much nicer. The temple is simple and beautiful, shaped like an egg with landscaping surrounding it. High on a hill, a wonderful view as well.

This is a beautiful peaceful place no matter what religion or beliefs you have. Usually there are few to no guests up here. The trickiest part is getting there as you have to pass it from the road (Transismica) and then take the next turnaround. The view of the city is real nice all around and 14 years ago there was a lot less city to be seen. The City is gaining on it and may threaten the stillness some day. From a distance as you are approaching from a few miles away it looks like a big egg on a hill. I believe this was the first Bahai temple in Latin America. There are around a dozen in the world.

A beautiful temple with a very 60's architecture and an amazing view of the city from on high. However, please don't bring food, music, sleeveless shirts, or pets for your picnic on the grassy knoll, as they are not allowed on the site. It is a very peaceful, friendly and contemplative place.

Crazy ride up the rough road to this magnificent Temple. The feeling of calmness and tranquility can be felt the Moment you arrive. The views are great and the day I was up there the Sky was perfectly clear, with a slight breeze. This Temple is a must see if you are in the area, check it out.

BYE BYE

make sure your drive knows how to get here and has a vehicle with good brakes (for the return down the steep and narrow driveway). The pot holes, Metro construction and traffic horns can occupy one's attention to the point of missing the turn off.
At the temple a greeter will pleasantly explain the rules of conduct. Quiet. Cool. Great views along the concrete walk around the circular temple building. No entrance fee.
