Accessibility description

Western Monastery has a small number of barrier-free facilities, such as ramps for entrances and exits, passages, and accessible toilets. However, the design fails to fully consider the needs of wheelchairs/persons with reduced mobility. Most locations only have stairs instead of ramps. It is more difficult for wheelchairs/persons with reduced mobility to get on and off.

 FG Tips

There is no bus to reach, it is recommended that wheelchair users take a barrier-free taxi or rehabilitation bus to get there
