Declared monuments of Hong Kong are places, structures or buildings legally declared to be "protected". In Hong Kong, declaring a monument requires consulting the Antiquities Advisory Board, the approval of the Chief Executive as well as the publication of the notice in government gazette.[1]

As of 12 November 2010, there are 98 declared monuments in Hong Kong.[2] Under Antiquities and Monuments Ordinance, some other buildings are classified as Grades I, II and III historic buildings, and are not listed below.

Monument declaration and historic buildings grading system

There was no direct link between graded buildings and monuments. As of July 2007, 607 buildings had been graded (since 1980), 54 of these, including five Grade I buildings, had been demolished. As of August 2007, of 151 buildings classified as Grade I, only 28 pre-war buildings have been declared monuments since 1980.[3]

On November 26, 2008, the Antiquities Advisory Board announced that the declaration of monuments would be related to the grading of historic buildings.[4]
