Situated at Miu Keng of Wo Keng Shan in Ping Che of Fanling, Cheung Shan Monastery (formerly called Cheung Sang Nunnery) was built in around 1789. Since Miu Keng was the halfway point on the route to Shenzhen via Sha Tau Kok in the past, the monastery was once a rest stop for travelers.

Cheung Shan Monastery is a 2-hall structure, with the rear hall approximately 1 m higher than the front hall. The external and internal parts of the Monastery are decorated with exquisite plaster mouldings. Buddha, Kwun Yum (Goddess of Mercy) and Tei Chong Wong (Guardian of the Earth) are worshipped there.

After a full restoration in 1997, Cheung Shan Monastery was declared a monument in 1998.
