Tang Chung Ling Ancestral Hall (Lung Yeuk Tau, Fanling)
The Tang Chung Ling Ancestral Hall is one of the largest ancestral halls in Hong Kong. It is reputed to have been built around 1525 in honour of the founding ancestor, Tang Chung-ling (1302-1387), and became the main ancestral hall of the Tang clan at Lung Yeuk Tau.
The magnificent ancestral hall is a three-hall building with two spacious internal courtyards. An annex, which serves as the kitchen, is attached to the right side. The whole building is exquisitely decorated with fine wood carvings, elaborate plaster mouldings, ceramic sculptures and murals of auspicious Chinese motifs, reflecting the superb craftsmanship of the period.
Full restoration of the ancestral hall was completed in the middle of 1992 under the supervision of the Antiquities and Monuments Office and the Architectural Services Department.
