The Temple of Damanhur – Italy’s Eighth Wonder of The World

It is truly amazing what the combination of passion, privacy, and keeping the government out of the equation can produce. An Italian man had visions when he was 10 years old. Over the next 40 years he took these visions and brought them to reality in what is called the Temple of Damahur. A complex of tunnels and amazing rooms in the hills outside of Turin were created by Oberto Airaudi with only a few friends knowing about it.

Follow this link to see more pictures but it is truly amazing what has been created over the lifetime of 1 man.

Here, 100ft down and hidden from public view, lies an astonishing secret – one that has drawn comparisons with the fabled city of Atlantis and has been dubbed ‘the Eighth Wonder of the World’ by the Italian government.
For weaving their way underneath the hillside are nine ornate temples, on five levels, whose scale and opulence take the breath away.
Constructed like a three-dimensional book, narrating the history of humanity, they are linked by hundreds of metres of richly decorated tunnels and occupy almost 300,000 cubic feet – Big Ben is 15,000 cubic feet. the Daily Mail
