Tang Kwong U Ancestral Hall Shui Tau, Kam Tin, Yuen LongThe Tang Kwong U Ancestral Hall, also known as Loi Shing Tong, is situated in Shui Tau, Kam Tin. It was built in the 40th year of the Kangxi reign (1701) during the Qing dynasty by Tang Tseung Luk (alias Tang Chik Kin), the 21st generation ancestor of the Tang clan, in commemoration of the 17th generation ancestor of the clan, Tang Kwong-u, also known as Tang Chung-fung. According to a stone tablet in the ancestral hall, it underwent renovations with donations from Tang clansmen in the 47th year of the Qianlong reign (1782) during the Qing dynasty.
