Hean Boo Thean Temple (玄母殿), Penang

This newly built temple is very popular among local and foreign visitors.(See link HERE.) Although the path (see yellow arrow lines) leading to this interesting site is bumpy and uneven, I found it "manageable" for my motorized wheelchair.

The ramp at the entrance is steep. There is no other facilities for disabled people.

I found the ground floor to be flat and spacious. However I could not find a lift to go up to the first floor.

This is a good place to visit if you like photography. The following photos were taken right in front of the temple.


  1. Dear Ka Tan, It's very good to discover your blog. It is lively and informative. Should be useful for many visitors too!
    Kind regards,

    1. Thanks. I hope more people would do informal access survey and share information.

  2. The two bins in the disabled toilet, one is for the disposal of sanitary towels etc.
    It is very good of you to champion for all wheelchair users, thank you.
