Situated at the junction of Sung Wong Toi Road and Ma Tau Chung Road, Sung Wong Toi Garden is a landmark of great historical significance in Kowloon City District.
It is said that in the final years of the Southern Song Dynasty (1127 - 1279), the last 2 emperors (Emperor Zhao Shi and Emperor Zhao Bing) fled south during the Mongolian invasion and took refuge in Kowloon City area. People inscribed the Chinese characters "Sung Wong Toi" (literally meaning “Terrace of kings of the Song Dynasty”) on a huge rock on the “Sacred Hill”, a hillock once overlooking the coast, to commemorate the visit of the imperial court.
In the 1950s, the “Sacred Hill” was levelled by the Government for the expansion of Kai Tak Hong Kong International Airport. The boulder inscribed with the characters “Sung Wong Toi” was salvaged, and cut into a rectangle shape. Later on, the Government constructed Sung Wong Toi Garden in the vicinity of the “Sacred Hill” and the inscribed boulder has been displayed here since then.
