The Cao Dai religion is a strange mix of Confucianism, Taoism, Buddhism and Roman Catholicism, and had a strong political flavour in the past. It was founded in Southern Vietnam in 1926 and has Jesus, Buddha and Victor Hugo as saints, among many others. A Cao Dai temple is a very colourful affair, resembling something from a kids colouring book with pastel coloured dragons snaking around columns, odd religious objects like the Divine Eye and flashing Christmas lights, but it all go very well with the equal colourful robes of the priests. This Cao Dai temple lies right in Ho Chi Minh City, and should not be confused with the main Cao Dai temple in Tay Ninh (95 km from HCM City), which can be included in a tour to the Cu Chi tunnels.
Visitors are welcome to attend mass which are held at 12 am, 6 am, 12 pm and 6 pm.
