Reminds me of the grand plasa's o the Latterday Saints in the Us with a lot of embolishments.If you are lucky enough to attend during the mid day mass, you will not be disappointment. The followers are friendly and will give you advise on where to stand and react to their prayers.

The interior of this temple is what people come to see. The only image is of a world with eyes, like a giant eye ball. Above the altar is a painting that shows a Moslem, Jesus, Confucious, a Taoist immortal, and Buddha and a saying that roughly translates as "thousands of teachers". Shoes must be removed at the foot of the steps and men and woman have separate entrances - women on the left, men on the right. Dare to take one wrong step and you will be pounced upon by a very officious woman to do the right thing. Worth checking out because of the weirdness of the interior.

This temple is definitely worth a visit. It encompasses all major religions and is a different philosophy of life. Inside the temple is very colorful and serene. We stopped to see the noon prayers. It is very serene. It can be watched from a balcony. They have a number of volunteers to ensure that visitors do not disrupt the ceremony.

A beautiful moving ceremony full of music and colour. A spiritual and sensual occasion. Who could not be moved by the chanting,drums, prayer and sense of community praying together for loved ones living and deceased.

I have seen so many temples in Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam, but this one is truly different and spent 20 minutes witnessing the service. It was truly an interesting experience

We went to this place during the day.. nothing much you can see even the history behind the existence of this religion is quite interesting. There are two different entrances for male and female. The worshippers will not allow you to sit and have some peaceful time inside the temple as well. Basically you just go inside the temple, standing, a bit admire, took some pictures and go out. Thats all.. spent there only 15 minutes.

We visited the Cao Dai temple whilst in Ho Chi Minh on a day trip. When we arrived we were made to feel very rushed by one of the volunteers (coloured strap on the arm of their uniform) who was trying to usher us up the stairs while our guide was still talking. When we got up there he stood peering round the columns at us making us feel very uncomfortable.

When the mass started there was a young boy present who clearly had learning disabilities. When the loud gongs started going he kept raising his hands and he was move to the back because of this. As soon as he did anything wrong he was scolded by the volunteers. It was very disturbing and alarming to watch. A man who was praying had his arm outstretched on the wall and one of the volunteers walked up behind him and hit his arm with a stick.

After this we decided we had seen enough and would go back outside to meet our guide. While standing there we heard shouts and the young boy had been thrown out of the service. He was pushed across the road bare foot (it was around 35 degrees and the floor was scolding).

For a religion that claims to be about humanity, love and peace we did not feel we were shown that today. I, and my group, were all very disturbed by the way this was handled and would not recommend tourism of a place that supports this kind of mistreatment of humans!

Caodaism is a syncretic religion founded in Vietnam in the 1920s gathering the various monotheist religion under one Eye. Neat temple worth a short visit!

CaoDaism is uniquely Vietnamese and, even if you tend to get templed-out in other parts of Asia, you won't see anything like this anywhere else. While this temple is by no means the best example in Vietnam, if you've not heard or learned of the Cao Dai religion, it's worth visiting.

I'd never been to a Caodaist temple before, so I was excited to have the opportunity. It sounds like an interesting religion as it combines facets of Christianity, Buddhism, Islam, and others. The temple grounds are nothing too scenic, and the interior is somewhat plain except for a giant globe with an eye (the Left Eye of God) painted on it. pictures inside the temple were not allowed when we were there, and neither are bare arms and legs. I was in shorts and a T-shirt, but I'd brought loose-fitting pants and a light long-sleeved shirt to cover up with. The temple employee who ushered us in (men through the right door, women through the left) was friendly and let us have the run of the temple and its grounds otherwise.
