The Holy See Cao Dai Temple in Tay Ninh, Vietnam

This faith is a mixture of Buddhism, Daoism, Confucianism, Christianity and a few other faiths.  It grew up on the Vietnamese countryside and was founded by farmers in the early 20th Century. 

Those in red robes represent Confucianism, blue is Daoism and yellow is Buddhism.  All also wear white.  The temple has steps or levels and as one progresses they move up towards the “All-Seeing-Eye”.  They have 4 prayer services a day: 6 am, noon, 6 pm and midnight.

Very kind people and an amazing interior!
