Declared Monuments in Hong Kong - New Territories

Tsui Sing Lau Pagoda (Ping Shan , Yuen Long)
The Tsui Sing Lau Pagoda (Pagoda of Gathering Stars) is the only surviving ancient pagoda in Hong Kong. According to the genealogy of the Tang clan of Ping Shan, the pagoda was built by Tang Yin-tung, the 7th generation ancestor, around the Hongwu reign (1368-1398) of the Ming dynasty.

This hexagonal-shaped pagoda is a three-storey, grey-brick structure about 13 metres high. According to the Tangs, the pagoda was originally seven storeys, but lost the four upper storeys in two separate incidents, presumably typhoons. The pagoda, enclosed by a grey-brick parapet wall, stands on a terrace platform, which follows the hexagonal shape of the pagoda. Each storey is decorated with zigzag-shaped brick eaves and auspicious titles.

The pagoda houses a statue of Fui Shing, who is believed to be the deity in control of success in examinations, on the upper floor.
