Cao Dai Temple, Tay Ninh

(3.5/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
Observe the intriguing architecture and colorful devotees at Cao Dai Temple, the seat of a syncretist movement combining Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism, and Catholicism. Built from 1933 to 1955 in an eclectic style, with intense colors reflecting its main philosophies, the temple honors Buddha, Confucius, Jesus, and Mohammad, as well as Julius Cesar and Joan of Arc. Watch daily singing performances in English set to traditional Vietnamese music, or admire dragon-wrapped columns and an ornate sphere under the watchful left eye of Cao Dai. This temple, blending neo-Gothic, Baroque, and various Eastern styles, lies 90 km (56 mi) from Ho Chi Minh City, close to the Cambodian border.
