High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Tung Chung Fort was
built in the Shun Hei era of Southern Song Dynasty. Smugglers on
the Lantau Island smuggled salt from the island to the Canton City
and attacked the government of the city. The government sent a navy
led by King Leok Chin to fight against the smugglers. Three hundred
soldiers were stationed in Tung Chung and built the Tung Chung
Fort. After 3 years of peace, the soldiers were called back and 150
of them were transferred to build Kowloon Walled City, in which
they later stayed. During the Qing Dynasty, many pirates, including
the famous Cheung Po Tsai, chose the bay of Tung Chung as their
base and made use of the fort.
