Located in Mun Hau Tsuen in Sheung Shui, Liu Man Shek Tong Ancestral Hall was built by the Liu clan in 1751, and is one of Hong Kong's biggest ancestral halls. The name “Man Shek”, which literally means 10 000 shi (a measurement unit for grain), dates back to the Song Dynasty (960 - 1279). It is said that the clan's ancestor Liu Kong and his 4 sons were all senior government officials, earning an annual salary of 10 000 shi in total. Their descendants hence named the ancestral hall “Liu Man Shek Tong” in their honour.

Liu Man Shek Tong Ancestral Hall is a typical 3-hall, 2-courtyard building, richly embellished with plaster mouldings, wood carvings and murals with auspicious motifs and pictures.

The ancestral hall was converted into Fung Kai School in 1932 to provide modern education until the school moved to its current premises at Jockey Club Road in Sheung Shui in 1974.

Liu Man Shek Tong Ancestral Hall was declared a monument in 1985. It underwent several restorations and the latest one was completed in 2016.
