Who goes to Panama to see such a thing? We did! Our vehicle gasped and chugged its way up a very narrow and winding road to reach this temple atop a hill overlooking all directions. The Temple is open-air, peaceful, well-maintained, with friendly staff, and...More

The Temple is a beautiful example of architecture. Peaceful and serene with exceptional views of the city. A place to relax and reflect during a busy and hectic pace. Well worth your time while in Panama.

Our host took us up to 'the egg' - it wasn't obvious to find the road up (not surprising for Panama). The walk around the building offers wonderful views of downtown and the valley where Corredor Norte runs. Make sure to read the rules about...More
