Hean Boo Thean Temple

Vipul Mehta
Hean Boo Thean Temple: Surprisingly, this beautiful temple is nowhere mentioned on the maps of Georgetown. We got to know about this temple accidently while talking to some fellow travelers. Upon visiting this temple, I was glad they mentioned this to us. The temple is close to the jetties, located away from the main road. After going for more than a mile into the small streets of Georgetown we found this beautiful temple located right on the sea. On one side beautiful sea breeze is flowing in and on the other there’s this enchanting music that is playing consistently in the Mandarin language (my best guess). One highlight of this temple is the dark God of Hell. There is a separate section in the temple for the God of Hell. Guess what’s there as offering. Alcohol, cigarettes and money (real and fake Hell currency). We were amazed to see this side of the temple. A great place to sit and relax in the serenity of the Gods of the land and the water at the same time. Definitely recommended.
