Panama City Sights

Baha'i House of Worship

  • Religious Building/Site/Shrine

Fodor's Review

Perched atop a forested hill 11 km (7 mi) north of the city is Baha'i House of Worship one of the world's seven Baha'i temples. The Baha'i believe that all the world's religions are separate manifestations of a single religious process, which culminated with the appearance of their founder, Bahà'u'llàh, who preached about a new global society. Most Baha'i temples are in Asia. Panama's temple is simple but also quite lovely, with a white dome surrounded by tropical foliage

(it resembles a giant egg). It was designed by the British architect Peter Tillotson. It is open to everyone for prayer, meditation, and subdued exploring. Men should wear long pants, and women long pants or long skirts.
