Situated in the northernmost part of Hong Kong, the North District was set up as an administrative region in 1979. It is divided into four parts: Sheung Shui, Fanling, Ta Kwu Ling and Sha Tau Kok. There are over 100 villages scattered in the North District and some of them are listed in the Xin'an Gazetter of the 27th year of Kangxi reign (1688) and 24th year of Jiaqing reign (1819) editions. These villages are mainly settlements of the Punti and Hakka people with rich heritage of historic buildings and traditional cultures. Up to now, there are 114 declared monuments in Hong Kong and 12 of them are in the North District.
