Murray House - Victorian Style Building

Constructed in 1844, this Victorian style building was the British garrison barracks.
It is also one of the oldest surviving buildings in Hong Kong.

The building was originally located in Central.
With the rapid growth of the economy of Hong Kong and the increasing demand for land, the Government decided to dismantle the building in 1982.
The building was then taken down brick by brick.
Its components were catalogued and stored until 2001 when the Government was decided to resurrect the building at Stanley.

Nowadays, the building opens to public visiting.
It is an upscale dining venue with restaurants spread across the floors.

At the west of the building, there is a wooded path which leads to a temple.
The temple is called "Pak Tai Temple" and it is a colorful Taoist temple built directly into the rocks above the water in 1805.

To get to this historic edifice, you can take the MTR to the Hong Kong MTR Station and leave at Exit D.
Then, take bus No.6, 6A, 6X, 66 or 260 at Exchange Square Bus Terminus and get off at Stanley Village Bus Stop.

Alternatively, you can take the MTR to the Causeway Bay MTR Station and leave at Exit F1.
Then, take Green Minibus No.40 at Jardine's Bazaar and get off at Stanley Main Beach.

Afterwards, walk along Stanley New Street to get to Stanley Market Road.
Turn into Stanley Main Street and walk for about 4 minutes.
