Tsui Sing Lau Pagoda photo

Situated to the north of Sheung Cheung Wai, Tsui Sing Lau Pagoda is the only surviving ancient pagoda in Hong Kong. It was built by Tang Yin Tung, the 7th generation ancestor of the Tang Clan around the Hongwu reign (1368 - 1398) of the Ming Dynasty. It is said that the pagoda is a fung shui structure originally situated at the estuary of a river facing Deep Bay for warding off evil spirits from the north and preventing flooding.

The three-storey pagoda is a hexagonal-shaped grey-brick structure about 13 m in height. According to the Tangs, the pagoda was originally seven storeys, but lost the four upper storeys due to typhoons. Fui Shing (Champion Star), a deity believed to be in control of success and failure in examinations, is housed on the upper floor. The Tang Clan believed that Fui Shing would ensure success for the clansmen in the imperial civil service examinations.

Tsui Sing Lau Pagoda was declared a monument in 2001.
