Caodaism is a fascinating belief system to research and see first-hand. If you're visiting Ho Chi Minh City, then you have an incredible opportunity. It's possible to incorporate a trip to the Cu Chi Tunnels with a visit to the Cao Dai Temple. If you do this, then I would recommend an early morning start.

Religious scholars, historians, and others wanting to learn more about a country's culture will find this experience well worth the effort. Before you go, I would encourage you to read up on this unique, monotheistic religion (founded in 1926) which incorporates aspects from Buddhism, Confucianism, and Daoism. It has millions of followers with hundreds of lesser temples. As well, the 'Divine Eye' concept is cool!

Beautiful place for a new religion. There are influences from Christianism, Islamism, Buddhism and Hinduism.

Very pretty outside - ornate decorations. Well worth a drive out and spend maybe 30-40 minutes wandering around.
The gardens are very pretty.

As a guide who casually bring tourist to this destination, I found this place not only really holly but also fascinating. This temple is the main Facility of Cao Dai religion, built in 1955 only but the structure itself attracts every tourists come here, as well as overwhelming them.
This is a must visit place, if you found this place boring then maybe you're not a true traveler or you joined a very low-service tour

This is an amazing temple. It is built a little remote to the usual suburbia and is approached by a huge roadway on each side and an equally large quadrangle (for want of description) which stretches from the entrance to the main road: this space is a forbidden area whilst any ceremony is taking place in the temple.

There is a viewing area, you are ushered to permitted areas to view certain ceremonies.The acoustics seemed good given the huge arae covered by the temples worship area.

This is definitely not "just another church" familiar to the ears of tourists in Europe as you stop to see the umpteenth cathedral etc. Cao Dai decor is ornate and impressive and there is one really large mural/painting at the entrance of this impressive establishment which can be included in your photos, but if in doubt ask one of the ushers.
