  • 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.
