Siu Hang Tsuen

Siu Hang Tsuen

Situated to the northwest of San Wai, Siu Hang Tsuen has a history of about 200 years. The Tang clan of Siu Hang Tsuen originally came from Lo Wai, but a lack of living space later prompted them to move to Lung Tong, where it was said there were only 10 houses when they first settled there. After living in Lung Tong for three generations, the clan moved back to Lung Yeuk Tau as the village was frequently harassed by bandits, and established the present-day Siu Hang Tsuen.

The wall in front of the village was built together with the archway at the eastern entrance in about 1960 to generate better feng shui that was more propitious for producing male offspring. A small temple called Fok Tak Tsz dedicated to worship the god of the earth is situated near the eastern entrance.
