The Tsui sing Lau Pagoda is the only surviving ancient pagoda in Hong Kong. It is a declared monument.

It was built by the seventh-generation ancestor, Tang Yin-tung, to avoid, prevent floods and help the Tangs win something. Built on a low foundation, the pagoda once had seven flooors, but it now only has three. it is made of mud bricks and granite. It is shaped like a hexagon, and on the ground and second floors there are writings engraved such as The pagoda of gathering stars and Light shines straight onto the dippers and the enclosures.
