The area of ​​the Ancient Music ancestral House was originally Cung ton temple founded by King Thanh Thai in 1891 to worship his father, King Duc Đuc. In 1899, Emperor Duc Đuc was brought to be worshipped in Long An Palace, thus, the Cung ton temple was abandoned. Until 1966, it was assigned to the Imperial Ancient Music Band to build the ancestral house. Since then, the Ancient Music ancestral house was born.
