Fun place to go for a few hours. Monkeys around the temple. Inside of the temple is very clean and beautiful.

This is the Holy See of the Cao Dai religion. Do read up about it first before visiting as an understanding of the history of beliefs of the religion is necessary to have a feel of the place. The only drawback: It is quite a distance from HCMC. However, a visit can be paired with Cu Chi Tunnels and the nearby Black Virgin Hill.

This is an interesting temple to see that we viewed on a tour that also included the Cu Chi Tunnels, however given it takes about 3 hours to get there it is probably not worth you time considering the ceremony lasts for 30 mins and you likely be in amongst a large crowd of other tourists.
It’s also a pity that the religious members who control the access of the tourists do so aggressively and angrily as though they don’t want visitors there.

With area of 12km2, Cao Dao Temple combines 12 monumental
and different gates. Every area is a place that is beautiful, poetry and very solemn.

The temple was full of lovely colors and amazing atmosphere. The rituals performed are interesting for someone secular not really into the religious traditions.

The building is a tribute to the Caodaism religion in the south of Vietnam. The practitioners engages in daily prayers here and tourist would often flock to this venue to witness this ritual from a balcony above.

Tourist are not allowed to take pictures with themselves in the temple but outside is ok. Do get a tour guide to explain the history being this magnificient building and its sub-culture to fully appreciate it.

As a part of the 10 Day South to North Vietnam tour with Halong Tours,I went on this tour which I highly recommend.Firstly because of the excellent guide called Cuong (Joseph)Dinh.He is very knowledgeable about the history of Vietnam and hilariously entertaining.I loved visiting the Cao Dai Temple during one of their colourful prayer meetings and the experience is extraordinary as Caodaism is unique to Vietnam.
A delicious lunch was included with consideration for a vegetarian.
On the way to the Cu Chi tunnels we visited a firing range and people had the opportunity to shoot,which I did not participate in.It made me think how frightening war is and that the people of Vietnam and others who have experienced wars elsewhere have to endure.
The Cu Chi tunnels are interesting to visit and demonstrate how ingenious the Vietnamese are and just how much they have suffered.
This'all day' tour was very thought provoking but also enjoyable.

Unless you are an enthusiastic theolog, there isn't much to see there, considering the long drive from HCMC.
The architecture and design of the temple is less than impressive and the principles of this religion were also somewhat strange - all religions are good etc.
Overall - waste of half a day. Strongly recommend to find other options
