The Temple of Johns of Disappeared Forests
or as in Latvian "Jāņu templis izcirstiem mežiem"

…is located in the northeaster part of Latvia, about a twenty minute ride from Burtnieku Lake. More specifically, we are located at the former farmstead called "Ceļmalnieki" or "Waysiders", Braslavas pagasts, Alojas novads, Limbažu rajons, Latvia. Directions from Valmiera: drive west to the small town of Matisi (23 km), then turn left on the road to Aloja until you reach the first significan crossroad at the village of Vilzeni. At Vilzeni take a right toward Braslavas Park. About 6 km down the road you will enter an oak covered alley. About 1/2 km on your right, you will see a sign that reads "Melnays Jānis". Our temple is about 1 km down the road on the right. Please park your car on the road. Welcome.

Planning for the temple began some ten years ago, but the accelerating pace of deforestation in Latvia makes the temple so much more timely an event. The temple is private, and open for visits to the public on Sundays or by special arrangement. We welcome inquiries about your plans for some special event, anything from meetings, small business conferences by nature loving business men and employees, a Garden Party, a wedding in the country, concerts, dance, etc. Please contact us by way of our blogsite.

The Temple of Johns of Disappeared Forests
is soon opening for visitors.
