Tai Shui Hang Station
Chinese 大水坑
Literal meaning Big Water Pit

Tai Shui Hang (Chinese: 大水坑站) is an MTR railway station on the Ma On Shan Line in Hong Kong. It serves residential estates including Kam Tai Court, Mountain Shore, Chevalier Garden, Sausalito and Sha Tin Fishermen's New Village. It also serves five kindergartens, primary and secondary schools. The pattern featured on the platform pillar and glass barrier is a shot of nature representing the Ma On Shan Country Park. For a period before the line opened it was known as "Fu On Station", since it is located opposite the Chevalier Garden (Chinese name: Fu On Garden).
