Cao Dai Temple Phu Quoc

Phu Quoc Island Attractions

Cao Dai Temple is an interesting religious site on Phu Quoc Island, boasting a bright technicolour exterior and relics of prominent religions from around the world. Founded in 1919, Cao Daism is a monotheistic religion which combines Hinduism, Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism, Christianity, and Islam. Basically, the central tenant of the religion is that we may follow different religions but we all share one true God. Currently, there are over two million people practising Cao Daism in Vietnam. It is certainly one of the most interesting and intriguing religions found in Southeast Asia, and has a certain mystique for most people.

Considered as the birthplace of Cao Daism, Phu Quoc Island has two outlets which are found within Duong Dong Town. Located along Nguyen Trai Street, the newest and most popular shrine was erected in 2008 and features similar architectural styles with Ho Chi Minh City’s Cao Dai Temple.

The main symbol of this religion is the left eye of god, which is featured prominently in every temple in Vietnam. Cao Dai Temple also easily stands out from other temples on Phu Quoc Island as it houses not only Buddhist swastikas and statues, but also Christian crosses, and Islamic crescent moons. The temple also commemorates popular figures such as Vietnamese poet Trang Trinh, Chinese president Sun Yat-Sen, French poet Victor Hugo, and Jesus Christ as some of its many patron saints.
 
Cao Dai Temple on Phu Quoc Island is open to the public, with worshipping ceremonies held between 06:00 and 12:00 every day. As with any temples in Southeast Asia, visitors are advised to dress appropriately out of respect for the devotees who frequent this temple.
