Went on a tour with cu chi tunnels visited also. Very colourful, went for 12 noon service and it was packed with tourists. The worshippers didn't seem bother but we felt we were intruding on their service. The outside area was interesting, it's worth seeing if in area.

This was included in our tour to the Cu Chi Tunnels and it felt a little superfluous to me. Maybe this temple is for you if you are a student of religion, but even still it is a 3hr drive from Ho Chi Minh City. I liked it for what it was, but I would not recommend this excursion.

Cao Dai temple is a big religion in Viet Nam, as well as a famous destination in Tay Ninh. It's not far from Ho Chi Minh City, near the Cu Chi Tunnel, so you will go there easily. You both can pray for youselves and have some beautiful photos.

The temple is really beautiful in a very alien (to western culture) way. I went with a guide who gave lots of detail about the architecture, the nature of the rituals, the elements of other religions included in Cao Daism etc which was fascinating. I do think it might be worth going solo however so you have the time to... More

It's one of the more colorful temples you may visit here. If you are " tempted out " then just stop by & take a few pictures. You usually do it as part of your Cu Chi visit. Either going or leaving

I visited the temple as part of a tour group. There were 9 of us and I didn't think anyone liked it so much. If you are truly interested in religion, go visit, observe and enjoy. If not, I suggest you spend the time doing other tours instead.

The Cao Dai Temple close to Ho CHi Minh City is a mus see, wwhen you are travelling to Vietnam. It is rather close to the Cu Chi Tunnels, so both can be visited in one day. Very colorful temple, and a very interesting religion.

We Visited the Cao Dai Temple as an addition to a visit to the Cu Chi Tunnels. The temple is fairly new by temple standards, built from 1933 to 1955, for a religion founded less than 100 years ago. The temple is novel, colourful, and surrounded by attractive grounds. To us it was interesting because of this novelty, but it... More

You only have to see the outside to realise you are in a very special place - The Great Divine Temple. In common with a lot of other tourists we arrived just before the noon prayers but it was a very interesting ceremony and quite moving. Both sexes were involved and we awere able to see some of the service... More
