Caminho da Povoação de Cheok Ká

  Over the densely foliaged southeast foot of Kai Keng (Ponta da Cabrita) Hill in Taipa, there is a path running uphill known as Caminho da Povoação de Cheok Ka. The villagers of Cheok Ka Village, one of the old villages of Taipa, are members of the Cheok clan. They were a big clan on the island and one of its early trailblazers. By the time of the early reign of Emperor Daoguang of Qing dynasty, the two main communities, Lam Ka Village and Cheok Ka Village, began to develop into a town and shops sprung up. After the Opium War, the Portuguese expanded its colonial presence and eventually took over Taipa. 
  The Tin Hao Temple and the Kuan Tai Temple are located on the right of the path, canopied by a few towering banyan trees. These two single-storey buildings are plastered in green and stand side by side to each other.
