In the 1950s, water became short in Hong Kong. To relieve the problem the Hong Kong Government decided to build a reservoir in Shek Pik Heung valley (石壁鄉) and to further develop Lantau Island.
Prior to construction there were four villages, Shek Pik Tai Tseun (石壁大村), Fan Pui Tsuen (墳背村), Kong Pui Tsuen (崗貝村) and Hang Tsai Tseun (坑仔村), in the valley. They were all relocated as part of the reservoir construction.
A Hau Wong Temple was located there and was inundated by the Shek Pik Reservoir in 1960.
