Sung Wong Toi Garden


Description
Sung Wong Toi Garden is a park of great historical value in the Kowloon City district. According to history, at the end of the Sung Dynasty (1276AD), Sung Wong Toi was originally located on a hill called "Sacred Hill" along the seashore. After the Sung Dynasty was overthrown by the Mongolian army in 1279, people inscribed the words "Sung Wong Toi" on the huge rock in memory of the fact that two Sung Emperors once took refuge there.

To preserve the historical heritage, the Government built "Sung Wong Toi Garden" on the west of the "Sacred Hill". The huge rock was cut into a rectangle and moved into the Garden when the construction works were completed in the winter of that year.
