Take time to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of this unique temple. Don't be annoyed if some of the "pilgrims" come to you upon arrival just to check on you and your intentions for this visit. I do advise you take some time to meditate and...More

This is located at the very end of the metro line. Just step off the train and come to the driveway leading up to this special place. It is never crowded (it's been here for 45 years) but the gardens and peaceful soliude are worth...More

This is a beautiful, peaceful Baha'i House of Worship (one of only 9 in the world) on top of a hilltop overlooking Panama City. It's a wonderful place, and the photographs don't do it justice.

I personally think this is should be on your to see list if you are in Panama for more than 2 days. The location is a bit remote but that is its draw as well. It really is quite beautiful with awesome views

Read up on Bahai faith before going. They are open to anybody, regardless of faith or religious views. The place is calm, serene and it offers wonderful views of the city. Meditate a couple of minutes while visiting and relax.
