Quite graphic statues

This is not for the feint hearted. It has quite scary and brightly painted statues of the things that could happen to you if you should end up in hell and have misbehaved.

Its not world class, but well worth a look, entry fee by donation. I found Monkey,Tripitaka, Pigsy and Sandy near the exit, gotta be happy with that.

Visited 15-Mar “Different”. That is how best to describe this place, with large scale graphic representations (i.e statues) of all the punishments that exist in the afterlife for your transgressions whilst living, along with other representations of the life of Buddha. Signs in both English and Thai so you can follow what is going on. Whilst over the top and... More

In the Buddhist beliefs, of what happens to people that do bad things and end up in Hell. Some say children have been traumatized but that could happen. The Wang Saen Suk Monastery Garden is a Wat garden in Thailand. A popular tourist attraction, it is meant to describe and depict Naraka.

Temple garden filled with grotesque statues depicting the tortures you can expect to endure in hell if you commit various sins in life. Bizarre and something different, walked around in 1 1/2 hour. Free entrance.

This place is worth to see. But it is a problem to find a right way to this monastery and park with statues. It is mentioned shortly only in some prospects. I foud the right way thanks to geocaching. The entrance is free, they ask only donation. On the donation box is written 1 year of age = 1 bath.

I like this place as the best educational place to show and explain people the base rules and norms in Buddhist culture.

The title, the Wang Saen Suk Hell Garden, is very apt. A large open area in a temple yard full of statues of what you can expect if you stray from the true path of Buddhism. The statues are made of, I would think, of a frame work covered in concrete and some are very gruesome to say the least!... More

Even Hieronymus Bosch with his visit imagination did not conjure up some of the fiendish tableaux here at The Wang Saen Suk Hell Garden. In fact, Torquemada and his Holy Inquisitors would have learned a trick or two if they could have paid a visit here. This is a Buddhist temple designed to illustrate the joys of following in the...
