Cao Dai Holy Temple
Cao Dai or Caodaism is a relatively modern syncretistic, monotheistic religion, officially established in the city of Tay Ninh, southern Vietnam in 1926. Due to its young age, it shows its syncretistic roots more than older religions. Cao Dai is the religion's shortened name; its full name is Dai Dao Tam Ky Pho Do (Great Religion of The Third Period of Revelation and Salvation).
Cao means "high" and Dai means "dais" (as in a platform or altar raised above the surrounding level to give prominence to the person on it). Figuratively, it means that highest spiritual place where God reigns. Caodaists often use the term Duc Cao Dai (Venerable Cao Dai) as the abbreviated name for God, the creator of the universe, whose full title is Cao Dai Tien Ong Dai Bo Tat Ma-ha-tat (translation: Cao Dai the Ancient Sage and Great Bodhisattva Mahasattva).
Cu Chi Tunnel
The tunnels of Cu Chi are an immense network of connecting underground tunnels located in the Cu Chi district of Ho Chi Minh City - Vietnam. The Cu Chi tunnels were the location of US military campaigns and were the Viet Cong's base of operations for the Tết Offensive in 1968. The tunnels were used by VC as hiding spots during combat, as well as serving as communication and supply routes, hospitals, food and weapon caches and living quarters for numerous fighters.
