It is in fact a combination of the best from Taoism, Buddhism and Confucianism, with Christianity and Islam thrown in for good reasons. Their hierarchy closely resembles the Roman Catholic Church and their colour scheme seems lifted straight from a Hindu Temple. Yet the religion’s philosophy fits very well into the world’s current religious turmoils. It is worth every minute for visitors to come witness the unique, colorful, musical and mysterious noon- ceremony.After lunch, we will go to Ba Den - Black Virgin pagoda by cable car .The view is breathtaking, and you will be surrounded on both sides by mango trees and woodland flowers.
