The city is most famous for being the home of the Cao ?ài religion, an indigenous Vietnamese faith that includes the teachings of the major world religions. The Cao ?ài religion's Holy See, built between 1933 and 1955, is located around 5 km to the east of Tây Ninh's city centre.

Besides the Cao ?ài Holy See, other tourist attractions include Núi Bà ?en ("Black Virgin Mountain") and D?u Ti?ng Lake, one of the largest man-made lakes in Vietnam and Southeast Asia.

In The Quiet American by Graham Greene, Tây Ninh is referred to as "Tanyin."
