The original Tin Hau Temple in Cha Kwo Ling was destroyed by typhoon and rebuilt. However, the temple gave way to district development and was demolished. The current Tin Hau Temple on Cha Kwo Ling Road was erected in 1948. The building is a two-hall-one-courtyard plan of three bays and constructed of granite blocks recalling one’s memory of people in Cha Kwo Ling made a living by quarrying at that time. It has pitched roofs of timber rafters, purlins and brown clay tiles. The main ridge is with a set of ceramic “Two Dragons Competing for a Pearl” for decoration. Tin Hau Temple, Cha Kwo Ling Road was rated Grade 3 historic building in 2010.
“Hop Yee Lung”, a 20 m long dragon boat built in 1958, can be found in Cha Kwo Ling Village. In the old days, dragon boat race during Tuen Ng Festival was a mega event of the village. Many villagers rowed “Hop Yee Lung” and won numerous awards. However, reclamation projects carried out in Cha Kwo Ling area later on made it impossible to launch the dragon boat from the beach and the dragon boat could only stay onshore. Nowadays, villagers of Cha Kwo Ling Village still worship “Hop Yee Lung”.
Law Mansion built around 1900 is also situated at Cha Kwo Ling Village. It is said that the building was constructed by the Laws, one of the groups of earliest settlers of Cha Kwo Ling. As Cha Kwo Ling was rich in granite, the villagers were mostly stonemasons and quarry operators. Constructed of granite blocks, Law Mansion is a 2-storey building with a pitched roof and flush gable end walls. The eaves are decorated with carved mouldings. The building is a historic residence in the district. Law Mansion was rated Grade 3 historic building in 2011.
