“Ecumenic Temple - try the walk below the crystal placed at the top of the temple”
Reviewed 10 April 2013

The picture is wrong. The picture shown when I wrote the review is of the Cathedral (also worth visiting).
At the Legião Temple they show the works of the founder of the Legião da Boa Vontade and a bit of their work on charity programs. Next to the temple there is a library and an auditorium. In the temple There are rooms for meditation and prayer. The main attraction is a spiral on he floor where you walk in direction to the center of the pyramid shaped building where, on the ceiling there is a 20-something kg pure crystal stone.

“It's worth the visit”
Reviewed 3 April 2012

This is a place that people say is for meditation but actually you are not that encouraged to spend a long time there, since you have to walk the path that leads to the crystal and move on.

“Strange place, a bit isolated”
Reviewed 13 February 2012

Anybody interested in triangular coned buildings should have a look at this (it is located at the rear of the main private hospital center at the south end of W3, and a stone´s throw from the huge city cemetery. Plenty of informatiion about the founder of this religious 'sect' at the main entrance. Slightly weird, etherial atmosphere on the inside, but impresses nevertheless. Certainly go if you have run out of other things to do and see in Brasilia.

“A peaceful temple for praying, reflecting, and refill the batteries.”
Reviewed 3 January 2012

The entrance leads to the main room, the pyramid of spiral floor under the largest pure crystal rock, welcoming the visitor to a recharging barefoot walk. Next room is an art gallery and right after a mineral water fountain. There's a library, a memorial for the founder of LBV (LGW), Mr. Paiva Netto, and more. A beautiful place for meditation and contemplation.
