Yau Ma Tei with alternative transliterations including Yaumatei, Yau Ma Ti, Yaumati and Yau-ma-Tee, is an area in the Yau Tsim Mong District, in the south of the Kowloon Peninsula in Hong Kong. Yau Ma Tei was a village in Kowloon. It was mentioned that a Chinese burial ground was assigned at a mile northeast of a village of Yau-ma-Tee at 2 December 1871. The name Yau Ma Tei is not thought to pre-date British rule. However, Kwun Chung is mentioned in many historic documents. Kwun Chung was a river valley with village and cultivation. On the hill south near the coast was Kwun Chung Fort built by Chinese (Qing) official Lin Tse-hsu to defend against the British. During the Battle of Kwun Chung in 1839, the fort - together with Tsim Sha Tsui Fort - successfully kept the British from Kowloon. The fort with the hill was demolished for development during early British rule of Kowloon.
