History[edit]

Main article: Tsz Wan Shan

Known as Tsz Wan Shan, or Temple Hill, the block design of the Tsz Wan Shan Resettlement Housing was different from that of Shek Kip Mei Resettlement Estate, with room access from the internal corridor. Each room had its own private balcony, water tap and toilet.[1]

In 1980, the estate was split into Tsz Lok Estate, Tsz Oi Estate, Tsz Ching Estate, Tsz Man Estate and Tsz On Estate.[2] In 1985, Blocks 40, 61 to 65 were found to have structural problems by the Hong Kong Housing Authority.[3] All the blocks were demolished between the 1980s and 1990s, and replaced by new blocks of Tsz On Court, Tsz Lok Estate, Tsz Oi Court, Tsz Ching Estate, Tsz Man Estate and Tsz Hong Estate.[4][5]
