About
The Temple of Solomon, which the Eternal One saw as His own house, was a link between man and the Lord God, a place where a chosen people would worship the Lord wholeheartedly. No other building on earth has ever held more importance than this, specifically because of its spiritual meaning. While lifting up and exalting the name of the Most High among all nations, the Temple also ignited faith in God's people, creating awareness of submission, respect for what was holy, and fear. Through this, all began to acknowledge the greatness of the God of Israel. Today, the Temple of Solomon in Sao Paulo aspires to the same goals as the previous one. Awaken people's Faith in the Living God. The Temple embraces people of many beliefs and cultures, to attend the meetings you must follow a rule list of security and behavior. Also the Temple has a guided tour available every hour, this visitation requires a fee of $ 25 BRL and it's available from 9am until 6pm. You'll have access to the Biblical Garden (Real Size replica of the Tabernacle of Moses, Memorial of the Temples in Jerusalem and the Centenary Olive Tree Garden). Please, book your visit for the guided tour via email.

I had read reviews of the Temple of Solomon recreation in Sao Paulo and was uncertain if it was worth a visit, but I decided to give it a try.
While it is not too far out, my hotel recommended a taxi ride due to safety so that is what I did. I arrived with no problem to be blown away by the huge size of the building--apparently it is two times the size of the biblical temple of Solomon, but it looks on the outside exactly like what I would have pictured, right down to the columns. I walked around outside (I had not managed to schedule a tour of the gardens) and admired the building and the grounds, but it was raining, so I then went inside. Hint: the entry to the temple is actually underground and reached by stairs located near Ave Celso Garcia, not from up by the building). Once you are downstairs there is a place to check cellphones, backpacks, and cameras (not allowed inside). Then you go up the stairs to the main level (which is actually behind the great doors you see in front) where you can enter inside.
Sadly, I was disappointed by the inside. I expected more of a recreation of the Temple, but what I found was a huge worship center with seats for 10,000 people, large Menorah lights on the wall, a big projection system, and big screen TVs. Worship was in session and I stayed for a while, but with poor portugues language, I could not keep up with the words spoken. The participants appeared to enjoy the worship.
If you are interested in the architecture, visit the outside and skip the inside. If you are more interested in the worship, by all means go inside.

This place is amazing, I really recommend the visit.

Everything was designed so that we could be sent back to the time of the facts and this happens with mastery.

The guides wear clothes of the time and explain very well about the departure of slavery in Egypt until the arrival of promised Land.

This Biblical tour shows the history of the Hebrew people from their slavery in Egypt, their eventual deliverance through Moses along with Israel's up's and down's due to the turning and returning back to God, including the building and destruction of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem, the focal point for Jews and the link with the Christian faith today and the coming of the Lord Jesus.
This tour explains the importance sacrifices presented in the past and what it represented. It explains the holiness of everything that was done back then, which is what the Temple of Solomon and the IURD (Igreja Universal do Reino de Deus) wants to show to people who attend.

You get a sense of being in the desert as a Hebrew and also a a Priest when . you step into the Tabernacle and the Holy of Holies. It brought the Bible and various studies over the years and the tabernacle and the Temple to life.

There is a tour of the articles and the 12 tribes of Israel including an exaplanation of each article.

You can take pictures but only in certain places.

The Levites who take you around are very knowledgable and helpful in answering any questions you may have.

The tour took about an hour for us as it was only myself and my wife.

This is a MUST for any Jew, Christian, Muslim or anyone else interested in Israel's history.

The place is enormous. Can take up to 10.000 people.
Personally it seems to me to be more a business than a place to pray and find spiritual guidance.

Well, sorry to say, it is a money machine and that can be seen from the fortune of Mr. Macedo.

It is absolutely incredible in its size and grandeur, Jews have lost countless lives defending this very structure on the temple mount of Jerusalem, so to see it here in real life is completely awe inspiring. I had tears in my eyes.

I am not religious, but I was emotional about seeing this very profound relic of Jewish history that Jews still tragically yearn for.
Today, Jews pray at the 'Western wall' in Jerusalem which is a part of the retaining wall that used to surround the temple, they wait for the messiah to rebuild the temple, that has been replicated in Sao Paulo!

Their services are at 7am, 9am and 6pm on Sundays. Otherwise you can watch them on free-to-air Sao Paulo TV, they have their own channel.
They are actually Christian ! I asked them at the visitor center twice what the name of their sect was, they said "we are Christian" haha.
A Brazilian told me they are a popular organisation. I have seen stars of David all over Brazil (from Sao Paulo to Sao Luis) and wondered what was going on.

They also have tours which include seeing a replica of the ark of the tabernacles!! Unbelievable!
The regular (and more often conducted) tours are in Portuguese. You need to ask about the English ones.

The Templo de Salomão built by the Universal Church Kingdom of God and is an "exact replica" of the ancient Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem. The spiritual significance of the temple is related to the visitors' religion. As a stracture is impressive and takes up an entire city block. Unfortunately I visited it on Saturday which is closed for visitors, so I had the opportunity to see only the exterior stracture and the sarrouding gardens. Before visit the temple be informed for the timing schedule of visits.

This is a supposedly holy place recently built by televangelists benefiting from tax exemption laws. The structure was purposefully built on a very poor area in need of investments to get land on the cheap, and nothing or very little has been done by the administration of the place to help that population, as can easily and plainly be observed by just looking around it. This is a costly scam, not a tourist attraction of any sort.

This trip was an unforgettable experience. The biblical garden tour brings you back to the times of Moses in Israel. The majestic altar inside the Temple makes you want to return again. It is truly a spiritual journey as you walk down the aisle inside the Temple.
