Statue Square - Statues in the Square

This square was built at the end of the 19th century.
The name of the square derived from the fact that it originally contained the statue of Queen Victoria.

Besides the statue of Queen Victoria, statues of Prince Albert, Edward VII and Sir Thomas Jackson were all stood in this area.

During the Second World War, the statues were commandeered by the Japanese.
Luckily, all of the statues were returned to Hong Kong after the war.
Nowadays, the statue of Sir Thomas Jackson is placed the middle of the square and the statue of Queen Victoria is placed in Victoria Park.

The square is very crowded on weekends.
It has become a gathering place for foreign domestic helpers.
Those foreign domestic helpers come to the square on their day off to socialize with each other.

To reach this place, exit off Central MTR Station Exit K.
Once you get out of the station, you know you are at the right place.
