Tang Chung Ling Ancestral Hall (Lung Yeuk Tau, Fanling)
Situated to the northwest at the foot of Lung Shan, Fanling, Tang Chung Ling Ancestral Hall is one of the largest ancestral halls in Hong Kong. Evidence suggest that the original building dates from 1525 to honour the founding ancestor, Tang Chung Ling (1302-1387) and has since then been the main ancestral hall of the Lung Yeuk Tau lineage. The whole building is exquisitely decorated with fine wood carvings, polychrome plaster mouldings, ceramic sculptures and murals of auspicious Chinese motifs, fully reflecting the superb craftsmanship of the olden days.
A major restoration was carried out in 1991 with a generous donation from the Hong Kong Jockey Club together with a modest contribution from the Government. The project was completed in mid 1992 under the supervision of the Antiquities and Monuments Office and the Architectural Services Department. It was declared a monument in 1997.
