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...

A Buddhist destination not far away from Si Racha. It is a park tucked away from the main road, with really scary statues of people been punished/killed when they do not follow the proper rules of life and Buddhism. The park is really educational and opens one mind. Since there are no taxis, one can only reach the park by... More

The Hell garden in the Wat Wang Saen Suk showing the gruelling punishments in afterlife in (Buddhist) hell (with lots of English explanations), peaceful life in heaven, Thai proverbs and a whole set of Chinese gods. My Thai friend told me that it scared the hell out of her when she was visiting as a kid.
