Tay Ninh, Vietnam
The United States, although full of diversity, is relatively mild when it comes to religion. For this reason, I decided to take the opportunity to travel a short distance from Ho Chi Minh City to see the Cao Dai Temple, home of the relatively modern religion of the same name.
Cao Dai was established in 1926, and is a combination of Taoism, Buddhism, and Confucianism, Christianity, Hinduism and Islam. It’s organizational structure is similar to the Catholic Church. It’s followers dress in white robes and believe that during their forty-minute prayer sessions, God’s presence gazes out at them through the Divine Eye.
