Heng Len Tuah Temple (GPS: 5.41036, 100.33371; Traditional Chinese: 顯靈壇, Simplified Chinese: 显灵坛, Penang Hokkien: Hean1 Leng3 Tnua2 ) is a temple in Noordin Street Ghaut, George Town. It is on the eastern part of the Seven Street Precinct.

Heng Len Tuah began as a small shrine. In 2014, a new brick temple was built to replace the shrine. It is located next to the Noordin Street Flats. At time of writing (September, 2014), the new temple is about to be completed.

The interior of the new Heng Len Tuah has a single prayer hall. On either sides are wall murals.
