Located in the vicinity of the very city center, Cao Dai Temple is a favorite stop for visitors all over the world, who come to see the place where the worshipers of the new religion come to pray. Established in 1919, and officially recognized as a religion in 1997, Cao Dai started here, on the island, as a combination of principles from all the major religions of the world. The diversity and the elements of all those religions can be easily seen in the architecture and decorations of the temple--through the Confucian design, Buddhist paintings and statues of elements, to the colorful, decorated walls and pillars.

  • On the main strip. Easy to find. Place for peace and praying. Clean and peaceful and clean. We werein the neighbourhood while evening activities. Only listeded to it, sounded interesting. 
  • The Caodaism is a "religion" founded in 1921 and established in 1925 to the Viet Nam by Ngo Van Tchieu, a Vietnamese official. This religion was recognized by the French colonial authorities in 1926 and it would consolidate more than 5 million followers. The Caodaism is mainly based on three religions that have permeated East Asia: Confucianism (moral behavior in life in society), Taoism and Buddhism (research the plenitude and serenity by rupture of the attachments and the adoption of behaviour inside and outside according to Dharma) and finally Christianity (behavior inside and outside consistent with the teachings of the Christ). The Caodaism has the notion of spiritual guides, the latter being provided in all cultures. One finds for example Victor Hugo, Joan of Arc, pastor, Churchill, Lenin, Shakespeare, Buddha, Jesus, Muhammad and Sun Yat - Sen. It's kinda the Spanish hostel where everyone find what each brings... So everyone could feel at home... Whatever it is, very colorful and very surprising temple!
