THE BLUE

TEMPLE

The first Hall of the Temples where everything started is dedicated to pragmatic idealism and the discovery of the potential within all human beings.

This Hall, excavated inside the mountain in 1978 using pickaxes and chisels, represents the beginning of the great enterprise of the Temples, undertaken by a small group of individuals whose vision has inspired thousands of people around the world.

A fake brick-wall, built around a huge rock, hides the entrance to the first Hall, created by the founders in 1978 using only pickaxes and chisels. This Hall marks the very beginning of what would have later become the compound of the Temples of Humankind. Over the years, the Hall has maintained its original form, meanwhile the wall paintings have changed several times. Today, visitors can admire symbolic representations of the four elements: earth, water, air, and fire.

An exquisite mosaic, covering the whole floor, represents the Star Tarot Card, symbol of that pragmatic idealism which has inspired the creation of the Temples. The big blue sphere, placed in a wall niche near the floor, favors meditation and the contact with our inner self, allowing answers to the questions we keep asking ourselves to emerge.

A secret retractable staircase is hidden in this Hall. Its steps are decorated with mosaic and are completely invisible until the staircase unfolds, revealing the access to a lower level of the Temples. The secret passages we find along our journey in the Temples symbolize how we can open ourselves up to new visions and discover the potential and the richness hidden within us and in every human being.

Detail of the retractable staircase hidden in the floor. Its steps are completely invisible to the visitor’s eye thanks to the skillful work done with the mosaic that hides the steps perfectly. This secret passage is one of the oldest of the Temple complex.

The entrance door to the Blue Temple is masked on the outside by a fake brick wall which has a large rock set in it. When the door is closed, it looks like the excavation ends there.

The door opens thanks to a hinged system, activated by an electronic remote control.
