Bahai Temple, Las Cumbres

4.7
#7 of 17 in Historic Sites in Panama City
Visit the interestingly designed and peaceful Bahai Temple, perched on top of a hill with breathtaking views over the city. Built as a place of worship for the Bahai faith, whose literature directs that their temples be open to all faiths and creeds, the temple remains an inclusively spiritual place to visit. Sit and meditate in the airy domed building, or in the peaceful gardens surrounding it. You can reach the spot by car, or via the buses running back and forth.

  • The Baha'i temples of the world are open to any type of people of ethnic, cultural and religious origin. Panama is the fifth in the world and the only one in Central America. The second nearest is in Santiago de Chile. The one from Panama was inaugurated in 1972 and so far there are very few residents of the city who know of its existence, but I have visited it several times with family arriving from outside and with my children. It is on a hill where you can see the whole city and the Pacific Sea. Getting from any point of the city by the northern corridor is a matter of about 20 minutes. Its four grand doors and a beautiful garden cared for since its inauguration 48 years ago Bahaism is a monotheistic religion whose faithful follow the teachings of Bahá'u'lláh, its prophet and founder, whom they consider the Manifestation of God for the present time. The central principles of Baha'ism are summed up in three units: the unity of God, the unity of humanity, and the unity of religion as a series of successive revelations.

  • Excellent views, nice gardens, friendly staff.
  • 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. There is a free shuttle that runs from the base of the hill near the subway to the temple on the summit, and you can find the hours in the photos on this listing.
