The Temple Guardians

The Temple rises apart from Black Rock City at Burning Man, as an oasis of calm out in the deep playa that stands resolute, able to bear what participants bring and provide what they might need at that moment in their lives.

Behind the Temple stands a group that has quietly watched over those structures each year since 2002- the Temple Guardians.

The main duty of the Temple Guardians is to hold the space of the Temple. We create an inviting, inclusive environment that allows everyone to have the experience and expression they need. We keep the Temple itself, as well as the participants who visit it, safe.
