Cao Dai Temple

95 beoordelingen

There are many Cao Dai temples around southern Vietnam but none that compare to this. This stunning example is the most impressive in all senses. Built over a 20-year period and completed in 1956, it is the original...and the best.

Like the Cao Dai religion itself, the building's architecture marries eastern and western influences.  The temple is part-cathedral, part-pagoda, part-mosque, and part-fairytale.  Unusual pastel colors are embellished with gold and polished glass, and outside the building is guarded by ornate brightly-colored dragons that are as much fantasy as fearsome.

The interior is equally if not more striking than outside. Swirling Rococo design is complemented by various statues of gods - Jesus Christ, Brahman, Buddha - standing side by side; a vision of peaceful harmony in a once war-torn area.
