We did this as part of the Chu Chi Tunnel tour. Was really surprised how good the temple looked. We went inside to watch some of the midday service which was interesting, but we were crammed in and there were too many so wanted to get out to avoid the crush. Would have liked to spend a bit longer there,... More

We visited this temple as part of our private tour before going to Cu Chi tunnels. The temple is located in Tay Ninh, approximately 2 hrs drive out of Saigon. The temple ground is expansive with schools, houses and parks that belong to the temple. We went during the noon service. No shoes were allowed to be worn inside the... More

The Cao Dai Holy See (includes the temple) is a once in a lifetime experience. This is the place where the Cao Dai religion was founded in 1926, a religion that blends elements of Christianity, Buddhism and Taoism. It's spiritual figures include Joan Of Arc, Mohammed, Moses, Jesus, Victor Hugo. Charlie Chaplin is not one of these figures, regardless of... More

We took a full day tour to the Cu Chi Tunnels and Cao Dai Temple via Sinh Tourist. I've submitted a review on the Cu Chi Tunnels, do read it before proceeding with this second half of the review. The second visit after the tunnels was the Cao Dai Temple, which wasn't very far away from the tunnels. It stood... More

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
