Literally, Tai Mei Tuk (大尾督) means “the very end” because the landscape is located at the end of Mount Pak Sin Leng. In ancient China, people depict the curve of the mountain ridge as “the vessel of the dragon”. Anything on the “vessel” is a sign of good fortune. That’s also why people living in Tai Mei Tuk wanted to change the village’s name from “the very end” to “the place of beauty” (大美督).
