One of the most interesting facts, especially to expats and other tourists in Saigon and in the entire country is the openness and respect for the various types of religion that exists side by side. One of these is Cao Đài which was established in 1926, this monotheistic religion has its roots in Tây Ninh province. The name Cao Đài translates literally to “a high dias” which figuratively means a place where God lives. Country wide there is an estimated three to six million Vietnamese worshipers and in HCMC there are 24 Cao Đài shrines around the city.
