The Tang Ancestral Hall, was constructed by Tang
Fung-shun, the fifth generation ancestor of Tang
Clan about 700 years ago. The building is the main
ancestral hall of the Tang clan of Ping Shan. It
is a magnificent three-hall structure with two internal
courtyards and is one of the finest examples of
its kind in Hong Kong. The wooden brackets and beams
of the three halls are elegantly carved with auspicious
Chinese motifs. The main ridges and roofs are decorated
with fine Shiwan dragon-fish and pottery unicorns.
Ancestral tablets are located at the altar at the
rear hall. This ancestral hall is used regularly
for worship and celebrations of traditional festivals
and ceremonies, as well as a meeting place for the
Tang clan of Ping Shan.
This hall was declared a monument on 14 December
