Cao Dai Temple

The Cao Dai Temple in Da Nang is Vietnam’s second largest Cao Đài temple and is a place of worship for around 50,000 people. The Cao Đài religion was founded in the 1920’s and is based on the main religions of both the east and west including the worship of famous characters such as Joan of Arc, Victor Hugo, Shakespeare, and Lenin as saints.

Inside the temple there is a sign reading vạn nhất giáo lý meaning ‘all religions have the same meaning’, behind this sign are the founders of the world’s five largest religions, Mohammed, Laotse (wearing Eastern Orthodox clothes), Jesus, Buddha, and Confucius. Providing a spectacular backdrop to the altar is a huge globe with the Cao Dai divine eye on it.
