Shrine of the Earth God
 
Shrine of the Earth God
 

Not far west of Sheung Cheung Wai lies a shrine dedicated to To Tei Kung (the Earth God), who is known to the villagers as She Kung (also known as Pak Kung and Fuk Tak Kung). Altars such as this one are commonly found in traditional Chinese villages, as She Kung is believed to be the protector of villagers. They are usually simple brick structures on which a stone is placed to symbolize the presence of the god. Those with higher status may have gable walls with a “wok yee” design.

Apart from this shrine, there are two other similar shrines in Tong Fong Tsuen.
