Modern Ancient Sanctuary - Maloka Gallery

The Maloka at Modern Ancient Sanctuary in Iquitos, Peru

The Maloka is traditionally the building where sacred medicine ceremonies take place. It is architecturally stunning with its meaningful layered spider design roof on the inside and traditional leaves on the outside.

The structure is made of wood and complemented by beautiful white tiled flooring to aesthetically bring the modern into the traditional. The 'Shipibo Cross Yin Yang' banisters built around the maloka support balance of  polarities during ceremonies.
