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.

Stopped by for a visit with friends. Not at all what I expected, but loved the learning experience and visitors center. Great views from the grounds of the Temple.
