Found in the overgrown hillside at a trail junction. Appears to be the location of a giant former cemetery. 

Anybody can decipher the writing on the stone marker?

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.
