Amah Rock on a hilltop in southwest Sha Tin is approximately 15 m in height. The rock's shape looks like a woman carrying a baby on her back. The poignant story behind has been passed on from generation to generation in Sha Tin. Legend has it that a woman whose husband had one day sailed out to sea to fish but never returned. Since then, the woman with her baby on her back waited, on the hilltop day after day for her husband's return. One day, a sudden thunderstorm swept through and turned the woman and her baby into the now well-known Amah Rock.
