The Temple

The Temple. noun:
Out beyond The Man, at 12 O’clock on the dial, and easily the largest art piece on the playa, The Temple has grown to become an integral part of Burning Man culture.
Begun in 2000 by Sculptor David Best, the temple quickly became the place where burners put down our burdens, lay our losses to rest, celebrate our weddings, and focus of all the intention and meaning the community can lay on it.
The Temple is a place of celebration, but it’s a very different type of celebration than the rest of burning man. When The Man burns, it’s pandemonium, when The Temple burns, it’s silent except for the sound of flames and crying.
