"Nan Tien Temple has a lift from the ground floor to the 1st level (the lift is hidden up a corridor behind the café), ramps to the next level and entry into the Temple itself are located to the left hand side of the Temple as you look at it.
Stand alone disabled toilet facility is located on the way up from the 1st level to the Temple itself. It is outside the main building area but obvious when using the ramps to get to the Temple."Other accessibility information:
