The base of the Sai Gon – Gia Dinh Communist Party Regional Committee was established in July 1969 with the leadership of Secretary of the Party Committee Vo Van Kiet and Vice Secretaries Tran Bach Dang and Mai Chi Tho.

Inside the base, there are many trenches and a system of secret shelters, places for the Regional Committee leaders, conferences, and other activities.

The base of the Sai Gon – Gia Dinh Communist Party Regional Committee was destroyed after the war. The provincial authorities restored two shelters and built some additional building works. The base was recognized as a national historical relic site by the Ministry of Culture and Information (the old name of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism) on December 23, 1995.
