  • What a lovely surprise right in Iguaçú Falls. Definitely worth a visit. Very peaceful. The surroundings are beautiful. Can’t take pics inside - please respect that. Would visit this Temple many times & recommend it for sure. I wouldn’t never think of anything like this right here, but so glad it exists so all people of all walks of life can pause for a moment to breathe mindfully & appreciate it. Sit on the grass, enjoy the view, the air.... the energy is wonderful, light & soft... 🙏🏼
  • Amazing place, amazing people. Please go to the shop and ask questions about the products you buy, they are amazing in explaining it all. It is on your way to Itaipu, you can make both in one morning.
  • Highlights were reading the little notes in the temple, with people either asking for good things in life, or thanking for having them. Can be visited in less than 30 minutes. Donation based. A bit out of the way, may take longer than usual to get an uber. On the way to Itaipu Dam if interested.
  • Beautiful and traditional place where to be breath peace. Nice. You can go on public transport o uber.
  • Peaceful & serene. Located 1.5km off the main road. One can see the Paraguayan city
