The Cao Dai Great temple is located 5km east of Tay Ninh, a city in southern Vietnam. The temple was built between 1933 and 1955 and incorporates architectural elements of a western church and an oriental temple, in a colourful and extravagant rococo-like style. Caodaism is a syncretic religion founded in 1926 by Ngo Van Chieu, which combines teachings of the major world religions. The temple is very photogenic and receives a large number of tourists every year.
