Cao Dai Temple and Cu Chi Round 2

After a day of shopping and eating with the girls we decided to take them on a day trip to see the Cu Chi Tunnels and Cao Dai temple.

Caodaiism is a religion that was developed in Southern Vietnam in 1926. The religion encompasses various different beliefs- like yin and yang, heaven and hell, God and Buddha. The large temple is magnificent with a beautiful ceiling painted like a vault of heaven featuring clouds and intertwining stars.

At 12pm they allow tourists to watch the devotees sing a hymn and prayer.

After lunch we arrived at The Cu Chi tunnels again. :)
