Cao Dai Temple

Worth a peek

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 2.5 stars

Located in a busy neighbourhood in central Da Nang, the local Cao Dai temple is worth a quick visit, though it's not nearly as spectacular as the temple at the sect's headquarters in Tay Ninh.

It's simple from the outside, and an inattentive passerby could easily miss it. Try to take a peek inside though. The most colourful time to visit is when noon prayer is taking place, but do be respectful and wait until prayers have finished. Once completed you are welcome to wander inside to check out the interesting interior, decorated with typical Cao Dai ornamentation -- note the globe at the rear of the interior holding the all-seeing eye.

The temple is open for visitors and very quiet outside of prayers. You can also wander around the peaceful grounds and take a look at the display of artifacts in the building to the rear.
