Cheung Shan Monastery (Ping Che, Fanling)

Situated in Miu Keng in Wo Keng Shan, Cheung Shan Monastery (also known as Cheung Shan Kwu Tsz or Cheung Shang Tsz) was formerly called Cheung Sang Nunnery, and was probably constructed in 1789. Since Miu Keng was the halfway point on the route to Shenzhen via Sha Tau Kok in the past, the temple was once a rest stop for travellers, providing services, including free tea.

Cheung Shan Monastery is a two-hall structure, with the rear hall approximately one metre higher than the front hall. The external and internal parts of the monastery are decorated with exquisite plaster mouldings. Inside the monastery, Buddha, Kwun Yum (Goddess of Mercy) and Tei Chong Wong (Guardian of the Earth) are worshipped.

A full restoration was undertaken in 1997 under the supervision of the Antiquities and Monuments Office and the Architectural Services Department.

Cheung Shan Monastery was declared a monument in 1998.
