Very nice temple, fantastic architecture. The interior of the temple is also very nice. You can see the followers conducting rituals in the temple. The nun and monk are wearing different coloured robe and the followers wear in white. I do not there is another religion called Caodaism prior to this visit. So it is actually an eye opener for me.

This trip can be combined with the Cu Chi Tunnel trip to make it a full day trip from Saigon.

Our third visit over the past 10 Years. About a 2 hr ride from Saigon. All day tours out of Saigon usually combine this Temple with a Cu Chi tunnels visit. The tours time your visit here so you can view the noon time ceremony which is truly a moving experience so be prepared to take many photos.

Caodaism (also called the Great Faith for the Third Universal Redemption) was established in Tây Ninh in 1926.

It is a highly eclectic religion, combining elements of Buddhism, Confucianism, Christianity, Taoism, and more and its prophets include Jesus, Buddha and even Winston Churchill Joan D'Arc.

Adherents engage in practices such as prayer, veneration of ancestors, nonviolence, and vegetarianism with the goal of union with God and freedom from saṃsāra (suffering and desire).

The Holy See of Caodaism is in Tay Ninh and the temple here is well worth a visit if you are interested in alternative beliefs and customs. The temple sets the standard for all other Cao Dai temples in Vietnam and other countries where the religion has been exported by Vietnamese refugees.

You should plan on arriving just before noon if you want to see the daily service.

We visited this temple on the way to black mountain. It was spectacular ( as far as temples go). We waited for the midday mass. We also walked around the manicured gardens and park areas. The temple is different to many others as it is well restored, colourful and intricate dragons, snakes and ceiling paintings. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

On the road to the Cu Chi tunnels it is worthed to make a stop at the biggest Cao Dai Temple of Vietnam. This unique religion is part of the history of Vietnam.
