The Cao Dai Temple is unique because this relatively new (but officially recognized) religion combines the best of several religions. It is indigenous to the area in that it is only found in South Vietnam. There are 3 million followers to date. They believe God gave them a mission of restoring peace on earth. It includes teachings from Catholicism, Buddhism,... More

We arrived at the temple when the prayer ceremony began. The ceremony is accompanied with live music and songs. It lasts around 40 min. Tourists can go... More

Beautiful temple full of history. The day we visited it was the full moon celebration and the temple and grounds were full of locals doing their prayers. Amazing for our family to witness. We had several people come over to feel our white skin and giggle at the sight of it. Little did they know we had come from a... More

Came here as part of a tour on the way to Chu Chi tunnels. You arrive in time for the 12 noon prayers so see the monks at prayer. You can wander round parts of the temple and also around the grounds.

A very long bus journey, a very, very long day. About 100 worshippers just sat in silence in the temple. And that is it. Nice temple but as we were told by our Hotel Receptionist, we have temples everywhere don't go it's too far. Go on the morning trip to Cu Chi tunnels that is well worth the money and... More

A mysterious religious mix, worth reading about before visiting, attracts strong following. Take time to walk the grounds and see the herb gardens, monuments, living and schooling areas. The temple itself is a wild mix of ideologies in its architecture: absorb it as you can! Being there during a service is also interesting, with congregation inviting you to see their... More
