Tsui Sing Lau Pagoda

Yuen Long

Completely eclipsed by the high-rises next to it, the small, three-storey Pagoda of Assembled Stars on the Ping Shan Heritage Trail is one of Hong Kong's last surviving ancient pagodas. It was built in the 15th century by the forefathers of the Tang clan to boost the village's luck in imperial exams. It has since produced an assembly of scholars and court officials.
