  • It is said that a Liu ancestor, who together with his 4 sons drew government salaries of "tens of thousands of shek" caused the phrase "Man Shek" to be enshrined in the name of the clan's ancestral hall. This also affirms how prosperous the clan once was, and why the architecture of Liu Man Shek Tong still exhibits such grandeur and splendor. Entering the hall through the courtyard with its "feng shui wall", we first encounter the antechamber housing various ornaments, then the middle hall where the clan held meetings, celebrations and banquets, and finally the hall housing ancestral tablets, all in the architectural style perpetuated by China's affluent classes.
  • Liu Chung-kit, the founding ancestor of the Liu clan in Sheung Shui, migrated from Fujian to Guangdong in the middle of Yuan dynasty (1279-1368). Initially settling in Tuen Mun and later in the village of Futian, north of the Shenzhen River, he finally put down roots in the area around the Sheung Yue River in Sheung Shui, from where his descendants later spread far and wide. In the 18th century, the Lius were very rich and prosperous, and this was reflected in the erection of the main ancestral hall, the Liu Man Shek Tong Ancestral Hall, in 1751. It is a typical three-hall, two-courtyard building, richly embellished with plaster mouldings, wood carvings and murals with auspicious motifs and pictures. In 1932, the ancestral hall was converted into Fung Kai School to provide modern education. The school was moved to new premises in 1974. Restoration works on the Liu Man Shek Tong Ancestral Hall were undertaken in 1984 and 1994. (By AMO)
