Saigon Places of Worship Showcase: Caodaism—Signature of Southern Vietnam

Saigon(Ho Chi Minh City) is the largest city in Vietnam. It has long been a cultural crossroads influenced by Chinese settlers, French colonists, Southeast Asian cultures, and others. Over time, the city blossomed with colorful architecture and vibrant multiculturalism, both evident in the distinct styles of Saigon’s religious and worship sites showcased here.

Caodaism(Cao Đài) is unique as a major religion that actually started in Southern Vietnam within the last century. It shares many ideas with Confucianism, Daoism, Buddhism, and Western spiritism. Victor Hugo, Sun Yat-Sen and Trạng Trình Nguyễn Bỉnh Khiêm are revered as important saints of the religion. Adherents believe humanity must unite with God in establishing love and justice.
