No, it's not the Legion of Doom, but it looks like it. The place is really nicely positioned for views but way off in a strange part of the city. There are nice grounds for walking around and the building itself is very cool. Worth...More

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.

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 Bahai Temple in Panama City is truly a hidden gen in an oasis of high rise buildings. The views from the temple are outstanding and the best part is that it is completely free. Take your time walking around the gardens and sit in...More

It is definitely worth a stop here if you are returning to Panama City from Chagres National Park. The temple itself is worth a stop, but the best part is the view from high above Panama City.

The Bahai Temple is simple beautiful architecture. It captures the feeling of Spirit and peace. The view overlooks all Panama City. The workers welcome visitors and graciously share this special place..Bahai Central in Central America.
