Tsui Sing Lau Pagoda (Ping Shan , Yuen Long)

Tsui Sing Lau Pagoda (Pagoda of Gathering Stars) is the only surviving ancient pagoda in Hong Kong. According to the genealogy of the Tang clan of Ping Shan, the pagoda was built by Tang Yin-tung, the seventh generation ancestor, more than 600 years ago. This hexagonal-shaped pagoda is a three-storey green-brick structure about thirteen metres high. A statue of Fui Shing (Champion Star) is worshipped on the upper floor. The pagoda was built to improve fung shui of the locality in order to prevent flooding disasters to the village. Furthermore, it was believed that its auspicious location, which is in alignment with Castle Peak, would ensure success for clan members in the Imperial Civil Service Examinations. In fact, the Tang clan of Ping Shan has produced numerous scholars and officials.

Tsui Sing Lau Pagoda was declared a monument on 14 December 2001.
