Film still from The Black Dragon's Revenge (1975) showing the former Junction Road entrance to the Kowloon Chinese Christian Cemetery. Note the ornamental archway and the chapel behind the wall.

The archway, wall and chapel were demolished (when?) and replaced by a large Ossuarium building that now fronts Junction Road.

The small Ammar mosque in Happy Valley was re-built after World War II adjacent to the Muslim cemetery to offer Janazah (Funeral) prayers but also accommodated the needs of the five daily prayers as demand grew. It acted as a religious, cultural and communal focus for a number of Hong Kong Muslims in addition to the Shelley Street mosque.
