Tan An Communal House was built in 1880 and was one of the oldest communal houses in Can Tho City. It was conferred to be the place for worshipping the Village’s God in 1852. After many ups and downs, the old communal house was no more. However, in 2015, the new one was built at the roundabout on Cai Khe Islet, Ninh Kieu District.
