Stone Circle at Fan Lau
Peculiar Rock-forms

Trail Summary

Overall Difficulty (0Star)

Amounting to nearly 360 kilometres, the coastlines in Hong Kong were inhabited by many in days gone by, with carvings that have existed for millennia and Tin Hau Temples that have stood for hundreds of years.  In particular, Tin Hau Temple stands in Miu Wan, Fan Lau at the southwestern part of Lantau Island.  Some stones are laid out nearby in such a way that they form an oval-shaped enclosure, measuring 2.7 metres by 1.7 metres.  The unpolished and uncut stones are estimated to be artefacts dating back to the late Neolithic period and the Bronze Age, and are believed to be used by worshippers.  Being the oldest monuments in Hong Kong, they prove that the area was inhabited 2000 years ago.
