Located in Tay Ninh town, around 100km North-West from Ho Chi Minh City. It’s worth to google some info about Cao Day religion before the visit and then get there before 12pm to see the noon meditation in the central temple, which is really impressive. Otherwise probably not worth a separate visit.

This was a stunning temple! Service is held four times a day, midnight, 6am, noon, 6pm, which is something in and of itself. Tourists are allowed to watch the service on the upper balconies. During service no one is allowed to take photos of the front of the temple, there was a man out front with a whistle to enforce this. Also, no selfies are allowed in the temple, you will get yelled at ifb you do.

This private trip was organised by our tour company, it takes a while to get to it it's 90km outside Saigon, founded in 1926 this vast complex draws thousands of worshippers a year.
The main attraction is the Great Divine Temple, we arrive at about 11.30 to watch the daily mass at noon, you can view from the upstairs balcony, the 3 main religions are Confucianism, Taoism, and Chinese Buddhism.
We stayed for about 45 minutes, it's a long way to travel, as it takes some time to get out of Saigon.

This was a fascinating visit. The temple is extraordinary and we witnessed the miday devotions of the followers.It was aunique experience and the chanting of the devotees created an atmosphere of awe and their commitment to their faith was palpable.We were allowed to capture this unique experience using our cameras as there are no restrictions on photography.

In this temple there are many roads that can run motorcycles. There are many temples in a large campus. This is the headquarters of Cao Dai. On the annual festival people come here worshiped very crowded. If you come here to explore the local culture
