Tang Ancestral Hall (Ping Shan, Yuen Long)

The Tang Ancestral Hall, which is the main ancestral hall of the Tang clan of Ping Shan, was constructed by Tang Fung-shun, the 5th generation ancestor of the Tang clan and the Chief of Three States of Min in the Yuan dynasty (1271-1368).

It is a magnificent three-hall structure with two internal courtyards; it is one of the finest examples of its kind in Hong Kong. It is fronted by two drum platforms, with two columns on each platform supporting the roof, the inner column made of granite and the outer column made of red sandstone. An elevated pathway made of red sandstone in the front internal courtyard linking the first two halls could indicate that one of the Tang clansmen was a high-ranking official. Ancestral tablets are placed on the altar in the rear hall.

This ancestral hall is used regularly for ancestral worship, celebrations of traditional festivals, ceremonies, and meeting by the Tang clan of Ping Shan.
