Damanhur, Temples of Humankind 20 Years Open to the World

By 1992, Damanhurians had been secretly excavating an extraordinary structure for over 14 years. In June of that year, the secret would be discovered and the whole world would know that a group of practical dreamers in Italy were building the Temples of Humankind, an underground work of art dedicated to the spirituality in every human being.

This summer, Damanhur invites you to celebrate:
