The most notable site is the Communal House of Trich Sai Village, built in the year 1612 under the reign of King Le Kinh Tong. This place is dedicated to general Muc Than, who saved King Ly Nhan Tong (1066 - 1128) from the conspiracy of grand chancellor Le Van Thinh when the king toured the West Lake. The communal house is a fine example of the Nguyen Dynasty’s architecture, including closed gables, a three-door archway, left-hand and right-hand chambers, a front hall, a sanctuary, and two corridors. For the villagers, the communal house not only has artistic and architectural values, but it is also the place for their cultural and spiritual activities, expressing gratitude to the general who saved his king and served his country.
Trich Sai communal house has just been renovated but still retains the old Thang Long’s cultural identity. Through historical ups and downs over more than four centuries, were it not for the local conservation efforts, Trich Sai Communal House would not be in as good shape as it is today.
About ten meters to the left of the communal house is the relic of Gia Hoi Temple, devoted to the three princesses of King Ly Nam De, namely Van Phuc (Great Fortune) Lady, Van Loc (Great Prosperity) Lady, and Van Tho (Great Longevity) Lady.
