The earliest ordination base still preserved at the relic, Ngan Ha communal house was built in the 19th century. Due to the war and the deterioration of the communal house, in 1954 the communal house was relocated to a residential area in the village, 300 meters away from the old location. In 1990, Ca Ong was "lucky" at the current location of the communal house (about 20 meters from the old communal house), so the people asked the government for permission to rebuild the communal house at the "lucky" position, facing the sea.
