An ornate and beautiful underground temple was discovered in secret in the hills of northern Italy in November of last year.
. . . the ‘Temples of Damanhur’ are not the great legacy of some long-lost civilisation, they are the work of a 57-year-old former insurance broker from northern Italy who, inspired by a childhood vision, began digging into the rock.
It all began in the early Sixties when Oberto Airaudi was aged ten. From an early age, he claims to have experienced visions of what he believed to be a past life, in which there were amazing temples.
Around these he dreamed there lived a highly evolved community who enjoyed an idyllic existence in which all the people worked for the common good.
More bizarrely still, Oberto appeared to have had a supernatural ability: the gift of “remote viewing” – the ability to travel in his mind’s eye to describe in detail the contents of any building.
“My goal was to recreate the temples from my visions,” he says.
