The architectural artistry during Hong Kong’s colonial era is best manifested in the Tai Tam Group of Reservoirs, which is one of the six prewar reservoirs in Hong Kong. Completed between 1888 and 1917, it consists of Tai Tam Upper Reservoir, Tai Tam Byewash Reservoir, Tai Tam Intermediate Reservoir, and Tai Tam Tuk Reservoir, featuring 22 century-old declared monuments.  In particular, the four masonry arch bridges that appear in the woods of Tai Tam Tuk Reservoir, alongside their reflections in the lake, are the most breathtaking.  These four bridges were built in the Victorian style and have been classified as Grade I historic buildings.  In fact, if you want to visit all the masonry bridges, Tai Tam Waterworks Heritage Trail is the place.  Located to the west of Tai Tam Tuk Reservoir, the trail lets you admire its own unique beauty.  Other highlights include the masonry aqueduct, the valve house and the dam, which are all worth a visit.
