It's a small, but interesting temple. Inside the gates are two Chinese-style lion statues (one female, the other male) and the main hall. If you're female, you enter the main hall on the left; if you're male, you enter on the right. The main hall...More

There's not a lot to see, and you are followed closely by the nuns. I was hoping for some brief explanations, but got none. Still, it's worth a stop for some photos if you're in the area.

The Cao Dai Temple is a still functional place of worship and not a tourist attraction. Though when we were there, a busload of tourists were brought there as well. Prayers take place at regular intervals in this temple and we chanced upon one session....More

Really lovely experience. The temple is located in the centre of the city. You can visit any time (prayers are twice daily). Leave your shoes at the door and take some time to sit in the temple. We were lucky enough to bump into a...More
