Sin Shut Study Hall

Sin Shut Study Hall

The Sin Shut Study Hall, situated in San Uk Tsuen, was built in 1840 to commemorate and worship Tang Wan-kai, the 19th generation ancestor of the Tang clan. The building features two halls and a courtyard flanked by covered aisles. A kitchen is located on one side of the entrance hall, while outside the main entrance is a threshing ground with small chambers on both sides. The building was used for ancestral worship and as a study hall, but ancient weapons such as long-bladed knives, swords, bows and arrows were also once kept in the building. The hall had been used as a school until 1938 and housed a kindergarten after the Second World War. It is occasionally used to host banquets today.
