Gate Lodge - A Remnant of the Former Mountain Lodge Complex in Victoria Peak, Hong Kong

Gate Lodge - Victoria Peak, Hong KongThe Gate Lodge is a small white Victorian building located at Mount Austin Road on Victoria Peak, in Hong Kong. It was built between 1900 and 1902 in Renaissance style. It was declared as a monument in 1995 and it is now preserved in Victoria Peak Garden.

It used to served as living quarters for the keeper of Mountain Lodge, the summer residence of the Governor of Hong Kong. At present, only the Gate Lodge remains in the Mountain Lodge complex. Prior to its demolition in 1946, the Mountain Lodge, which was constructed in the style of Scottish lodges, was described as the most imposing and handsome architecture on the Peak.

Despite its floor area of only 100 square feet (9.3 m2), the Gate Lodge was planned in a very functional way. It now houses the site office of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department.

The Gate Lodge is about 20 minutes walk from Peak Galleria or The Peak Tram Terminus.
