As the title said. Very interesting to observe Cao Dai holy see at noon but it is too far and we spent 6 hours (round trip) on the bus for 20 mins visit. Very colorful temple with this combo religion found in 1926 in south Vietnam. I totally agree with another review that you need to read about this Caodaism... More

The temple is amazing on a grand scale. Beautifully ornate and colourful, truly a feast for the eyes!! An interesting concept of combining many religions together and worshipping together in harmony. We did the temple tour combined with the Cu Chi Tunnels tour and it was a really really long day of traveling. As great as both tours were it... More

The Cao Dai religion is a bit unusual but interestin, combining Catholicism, Buddhism and Confusionism together with whatever other religion you choose. The colorful temple is quite spellbinding and makes all the other types of temples pale in comparison. If you are going to see the tunnels at Cu Chi, spend a little extra time and make the trip to...

Not really sure what to think about it. A religion created about 100 years ago. The temple is amazing. The ceremony was nice to see.

This temple is really over the top with the intricate art work. The surrounds and temple reflect the ideology of this particular religion. Didn't get to see the service unfortunately.

"Intricate" was the adjective that was used a lot while I was visiting this temple with an American friend. And I have to admit that it was pretty true. If you look at the temple and its surroundings purely from the angle of architecture, it's a wonderful piece of art works on which obviously lots of effort and time was... More

The cao dai is a new fusion religion combining all of the other religious sects, with some really strange prophets that they veneer. A must see is the service which is a colorful extravaganza of music, singing, and procession. The temple itself is a beautiful structure full of color and carving. The only minor annoyance is that while you can... More

Nearby Cu chi tunnels and can visit both together no problem. Spectacular to look at, striking. Well worth the visit from HCM about 1 1/2 away.

We arrived for the mid-day service & whilst it was interesting, it really wasn't my cup of tea. I think you need to be a spiritual person in order to fully appreciate a visit to the temple.

I was truly being impressed by this unique and also the third largest religion in Vietnam. This belief integrated the wisdom of Buddhism, Christian, Islamic, Daoism & Hinduism. The temple was perfectly interested me in terms of Architecture & Culture. Recommend to be here in afternoon around lunch hour from 12-1pm. You can experience the way they praying & singing....
