Accommodating about 50,000 followers at a time, the Cao Dai temple of Da Nang is the largest Cao Dai temple in Central Vietnam. Constructed between 1933 and 1955, this temple renders a unique styled-architecture based on the blended religion frame of reference.
The Da Nang Cao Dai temple is one of the 1,000 Cao Dai temples located in the country. The signboard at the entry translates into very peculiar teaching of this religion - that all religions have the same reason and seek tolerance in the world.
Jesus, Buddha, Muhammad and Confucius are worshipped here. The design is similar to the Christian Cathedral with aisles and altars. Ceremonies take place daily with musicians singing in English and Vietnamese.
