Tay Ninh, the head quarter of Cao Dai sect founded in 1923. Caodaism seeks to create the ultimate religion by fusing Buddhist, Taoist, Confucianist, Islamite and Catholic beliefs into a synthesis of its own. This religion is attractive by its fantastic Midday Mass ceremony when the followers fill the hall dressing in red, blue, yellow and white robes. There is the divine eye above the altar, the religion's official symbol. The temple has nine levels which signify the nine steps to heaven, each level marked by a pair of multicoloured dragons.
