The morning will start with a scenic drive to Cao Dai Temple in Tay Ninh to witness the midday ceremony. After lunch, we will drive to Cu Chi Tunnel and return to Ho Chi Minh city in the late afternoon.
Tay Ninh province, near the Cambodian border, is home to the unique Cao Dai sect. The patron saints of this sect include Joan of Arc, Victor Hugo, and Winston Churchill to name a few. We can say that religion has a similarity with Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism, and Christianity. Cao Dai Temple in Tay Ninh can be described as a Walt Disney fantasia of the East. The exterior of Cao Dai is decorated with multi-colored dragons of all shapes & sizes competing for space with a number of Buddhist symbols.
The main entrance is impressed with the all-seeing holy eye, the symbol of the Cao Dai sect. The interior of the temple is just as engaging as statues of Jesus Christ, Buddha, and the Hindu, Brahma, stand side by side.
