A representative of Nativa Tours will pick you up at your hotel to start a very interesting tour: get to know the other religions that are practiced in Panama and its temples.
Religion in Panama is protected by the Political Constitution of the Republic of Panama, which establishes freedom of worship. 85% of Panamanians are Roman Catholic.
Bahá’í’s activities are for everyone, regardless of their beliefs, social status, nationality or ethnicity. The meetings organized by the Bahá’í community focus on human betterment and are distinguished by a spirit of unity and joy that is born from the principle that we are all leaves of a single tree and waves of the same sea.
The Corner of Visnú (Hindu Temple)
It is dedicated to Krishna “the last reincarnation of God on earth” and to Radha “his faithful companion”.
Its gigantic structure, crowned by pointed domes on stepped stones and complicated gopuras, or large doors, stands out for being situated on a hill.
All their gods are a single being, God, but they are divided into different figures to meet the specific needs of the believer. For example: Ram is perfection, Narayan “rules the soul of the human being”, while Shiva and Brhama are summoned to ask for health, money or work. Laxmi and Ganesh are considered the gods of wealth and prosperity, which is why they are near the cashiers of all Hindustani shops.
“Chang Hung” (Chinese Buddhist Temple)
“Chang Hung” is the first Buddhist Temple in Panama and Central America. Its construction in this city arose as an initiative of the Buddhist Association of Panama.
The members of this religion meet every Sunday from 2:00 p.m. Depending on the Chinese calendar, additional activities take place during the week. Sometimes the temple is visited by teachers and monks from other countries.
The visitor will learn from the hands of teachers how to use incense to achieve peace, they will also learn recitals to achieve happiness and extract from the soul the feeling of hatred and greed.
Mosque “Madina Masjid” (Islamic Temple)
The mosque is the most significant building in Islamic architecture, a place where you only go to pray. Its structure is a simple rectangular enclosure with a courtyard in its center where the quibla is located, which is the wall facing Mecca or the promised land where the faithful must lead their prayers.
The Islamic faith prohibits representations of people and animals.
Plant motifs are used to decorate, geometric figures and calligraphic representations.
Greek Orthodox Cathedral
The Greek Orthodox Cathedral of Panama offers the possibility of learning more about Christianity. But touring its spaces represents the opportunity to contemplate its architecture and design. Reflection of an era that still lives today.
With vivid colors -red, green, blue, gold- that adorn its walls, unlike Catholic churches the representations of saints in the Greek Orthodox Church are not in three dimensions. 2D paintings that personify body and soul.
Synagogue is the name of the place of worship of Judaism. By extension, it also designates Judaism as a whole; in the same way that “Church” represents Christianity. Something important is that the word ¨Synagôgê¨ is the same as in the Bible, in the New Testament, it is translated as church; this word in Hebrew also appears in the Old Testament, which is translated as Congregation / Assembly.
It is a place for prayer and study, but also for meeting, dialogue and interpretation of the Torah, hence its Hebrew name: ‘House of the Assembly’.
The Catholic Church are in complete communion with the Pope and together they bring together more than 1329 million faithful in the world.
The Catholic Church maintains that the only Church founded by Christ subsists, entrusted by him to the Apostle Peter, to whom he entrusted its diffusion and government together with the other apostles. For this reason, it considers itself a “sacrament”, a “sign and instrument of intimate union with God and of the unity of the entire human race.”
