Visiting the Holy See Temple in Tay Nihn, Vietnam

Traveling to Vietnam
Holy See Temple in Tay Nihn

While traveling 3 weeks Relaxed Vietnam I did make a day-trip out of Ho Chi Min City to visit the famous Cu Chi Tunnels (sorry no photos) and the Holy See Temple, at Tay Nihn (80km northwest of Ho Chi Minh City), the center of the intriguing Cao Dai religion. Cao Dai is a syncretist Vietnamese religious movement that incorporates aspect of Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism and even Catholicism. The Cao Dai Temple (as it is more commonly known) was build in 1933 in a unique architectural style that reflects its blended traditions. Following are some photos I took at the mid-day mass.
