The Temple of Good Will (TGW) is an ecumenical monument located in Brazil's capital. It was conceived and built by Jose de Paiva Netto, President of the Legion of Good Will (LBV), who inaugurated it in October 1989. Every year it receives more than one million pilgrims, making it the most visited place in the city, according to official data from the State Secretariat of Tourism of the Federal District (SETUR). Acclaimed by the people as one of the Seven Wonders of Brasilia, the TGW is on the official list of monuments for tourists to visit during the 2014 FIFA World Cup. It is part of the Legion of Good Will's Ecumenical Complex, together with the World Parliament of Ecumenical Fraternity, the LBV's ParlaMundi.

It's a place to charge your energy. Besides being an amazing architecture, you can pray and take a rest inside the temple.

If you need to get your mind at peace take a lazy walk by the spiral of the main building (shown on the photo). There is a huge crystal hanging at the top.

Very, very strange but worth... More

A nice place to think about life and existence. Do the spiraling, below the magnetic crystal on the top of pyramid, is mandatory. Remarkable moments.

Go... You will adore the experience. Do not go with short clotes. They will not allow you to get in. Once in a while I go there to get a push in my spiritual devotions. I live in Brasilia.
