Continental Bahá’í house of worship of Central America in the city of Panama at the crossroad between north and South Americas as well as pacific and Atlantic Ocean. Unique view of the city, most amazingly calm and peaceful. Unique architecture with open structure allowing air to run through the main hall and creating a very special atmosphere. Place for worship... More

The Bahai is well located in one of the highest hill near the city. You can enjoy a spiritual and peaceful moment while there

We went up the hill in a taxi. Once we were up there there was beautiful views all around. The city looked amazing. Inside the temple was a few people who came to meditate and pray. No windows or doors. Completely peaceful.

There are less than a dozen mother churches throughout the world. If you are in Panama City, try to get to this out of the temple. It is on the northeast outskirts of the city. You can take the metro to the entrance but it's a long walk to the temple. The free bus doesn't seem to appear. Go by... More

I accidentally found this place on tripadvisor during my stay in Panama city, Panama. Probably the most peaceful place I've ever visited. I took my traveling yoga mat and I was able to do beautiful yoga photos up there. Mesmerizing flowers, palm trees, and all kinds of plants surrounding this gorgeous Bahai temple. Worth the visit!!

Nice contrast with the noise and commotion of Panama. Open air structure lets cooling breezes in after a hot walk in the sun. The shuttle bus is free. Most days except Monday, running almost hourly. If you can stand the heat and humidity, the walk up is doable on about 50 min.

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.

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.
