These are photos of the Cao Dai noon ceremony in the Cao Dai Great Temple. The male worshippers sit to the right while the female worshippers sit to the left, all wearing white robes. In the frontal part of the temple sit the Cao Dai priests wearing red, blue and yellow robes, symbolising Confucianism, Taoism and Buddhism respectively. Two rows of pink pillars entwined with dark green dragons line the nave, leading to the main altar on which an eye is painted, the divine all-seeing eye.
