If you like temples then this is a great one. I sat for around 20 minutes simply at peace. I truly enjoyed this place and would go back.. but then again I am very keen on temples. There were 10 South Koreans on the trip who didnt even bother going in:-)

I really enjoyed my trip to the temple. It is more touristy than you'd expect and people don't respect the rules of no talking and dressing appropriately, which is a shame. The ceremony at 12noon takes about 40mins and you get to enjoy it from the balcony. When I attended, there were far less monks praying than the pictures would... More

Don't be fooled by the colorous pictures for this cao tai temple. Lots of people uploaded pics from a different and bigger cao dai temple in Tai Ninh- in the south f vietnam. So if you are after the colourful temple dont waste your time here.

I stayed at Hachi Hostel and this temple is just a 5-min walk from my hostel. It is located along Haiphong Street where Danang's second largest hospital - Danang C Hospital is also located. The exterior façade of the temple is not strikingly bold in color and thus you may miss it while passing by. I probably had passed by... More

If you do really want to feel how the local people treat tourists, come here! The price here is not cheap and marked up like 300% higher than Big C. It is not a good idea to spend money here. Not attractive or any specials souvenirs you can find here.

A long drive to the temple paid off. This temple is located 90 km from Ho Chi Minh City. Tthe Great Temple or Holy See is, I think, a headquarter of the intriguing Cao Dai sect. “Cao Dai is a Vietnamese religious movement that incorporates aspect of Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism and even Catholicism”. The temple is "decorated" with the 3rd... More

Every 0600,1200, 1800 and 0000 there will be ceremony and I went there at 1200. Many tourists came and left without much investigation. But if you google it, Cao Dai is an interesting religious which merges few religious together. Worth to take a look at their colourful and western-estern style architecture.

We visited the Cao Dai Temple on a tour which included the Cu Chi Tunnels. I was really glad that we decided to do this. Our tour guide (I'm sorry I don't know the name of the company as it was booked through our hotel) told us loads of fascinating information about Cao Daism. If you don't have a tour... More

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 has places for followers of the religion to pray etc., and visitors are welcome to...
