Astonishing Damanhur & The Temples Of Humankind The Number 1 Underground Site in Italy

Nestled in the foothills of the Italian Alps, in Northern Italy’s lies Damanhur and the Temples of Humankind. Named after the ancient Egyptian city of Damanhur that had been dedicated to Horus ( the Egyptian god of the sky, war and kingship), the Italian community of Damanhur is best known for its treasure trove of resplendent, one-of-a-kind artworks buried deep in the heart of the mountain – The Temples of the Humankind, dubbed by many as the eighth wonder of the world.

Damanhur boasts a colossal, multi-level subterranean architectural masterpiece brimming with magnificent, eye-arresting works of art that celebrate the divine nature of mankind and which are simply beyond compare. The architectural value and artistic beauty of the Temples of Humankind, a collective work of art masterfully created with painstaking efforts, are as undeniable as they are grandiose and awe-inspiring.

Linked by brilliantly decorated tunnels or corridors, impeccably adorned with an eclectic mix of visionary, color-rich and alluring artworks, monumental temples built 100 feet underground on five levels and spanning a whopping 300,000 cubic feet, artfully narrate the history of humanity across multiple planes of existence.

What is now a thriving small city of 600 people, Damanhur had humble and secret beginnings, a self sustained community living in harmony with nature and the elements around them. The use of color and imagery bring together the spiritual dreams and visions of nature and earth brought together in perfect harmony as the fitting tribute to Mother Nature and to our beautiful planet.

Words fail to bring true expression to the endless and unmistakable talent that each artist shared during the Damanhur’s birth. One thing we know for sure, it is a beautiful bridge connecting humanity to it’s spiritual roots and one we know will stand the test of time.
