Tai O

Last updated by fadri at 2014/5/4

The area is divided into two parts which are linked together by a river so the local people come and go by boat. The local residents live in houses called "pangwu". These "bamboo stilt houses" are peculiar to the area. The village has a population of 5,500 mainly Hakka people.

The village has many temples including War God Temple, Yanghou Temple, Hongsheng Temple and Tianhou Temple. War God Temple has been standing in the village since the Ming Dynasty. A bronze bell made in 1739 lays in the temple and its roof is decorated with fine earth type fittings.

Other attractions are Huatuo Statue and Wealth God Statue. Yanghou Ancient Temple was built to remember Yanghou King which looks majestic even after its repair.

Facing the temple are two stone monuments laid to mark the border in 1902 when New Territories were leased from China by the British Government. Walking along Tai O Avenue, visitors will see the Kun-yin Temple with a history of 80 years and with architecture which imitates the Summer Palace in Beijing.
