大澳慈善方便院 Fong Bin Yuen, Tai O
資源庫

評級:三級歷史建築

大澳有一個被稱為「等死俱樂部」的地方,流傳着許多鬼怪傳說。

1934年,一名佛教徒創建了慈善方便院,這座單層瓦頂平房分別服務男、女病人。由於遠離社區,方便院曾是疫症隔離設施,亦收容無親無故的長者與垂死病患。方便院也曾作停屍間,居民將在院內離世的逝者遺體放進棺木後,會暫放原處以候安葬。試想想,當時方便院的老人和病人要與棺木共處一室,相當可怕。據說更有人會將嬰孩

方便院早已荒廢,現因倒塌危機而用鐵網圍封。

In Tai O, a place called “Left to Die Club” has given birth to many ghost stories and legends.
  
In 1934, a Buddhist founded Fong Bin Yuen, a single-storey tiled-roof cottage where female and male patients were served separately. The cottage, which is located far from the community, was once used as a quarantine facility. It also received elderly and terminally ill patients who did not have any family or relatives in Hong Kong. Fong Bin Yuen was also once used as a mortuary. Bodies of deceased patients were placed in coffins by local residents, and temporarily stored in the cottage before burial. Imagine how horrible it must have been for the elderly and patients of Fong Bin Yuen to sleep under the same roof with the coffins. What’s more, it was said that people abandoned their babies in the cottage, and that there was a small room next to the cottage where children’s beds were provided for these babies.
    
Having been long unused, Fong Bin Yuen is currently surrounded by wire fences due to danger of collapse.
