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

The Cao Dai Temple is a magnificant temple, very colourful and a fascinating place. It is based on the three religions of Buddhiism, Tao/Daoism and Confucianism. We arrived for the 12:00 noon, hour of prayers. It's very busy at this time, with many tourists entering the temple to witness the fascinating ceremony, which was an experience to be part of....

I came to this with no knowledge or expectation so the experience was a complete surprise. Weaving together the world's major religions into one philosophy is a brilliant concept that Cao Dai has embraced; I have no idea how successful this is; but those nuns?monks? whom we saw at the noon service in the temple were obviously committed to the...

Visited this after Cu Chi tunnels. Was there just before 12pm ceremony/session. Temple colourful, and each part and colour symbolizing part of religion. Cao Dai a young religion (started 1926). Procession and ceremony quite unique combining different faiths. Tips- know the rules. Remove shoes and hats. While ceremony in place you cannot walk in front of temple. Be mindful that... More
