If you want to see something freaky and unusual, this is a must visit. Most people skip Chonburi and head to Pattaya but if you have time, definitely come to Chonburi and take a tour of the hell garden. You learn about what happens to people when they do bad things. I've lived in Thailand for 20 years and I... More

The gruesome depictions of hell are unusual and there is also a lot of very interesting Buddhist folklore statues. I think that it's worth going to...and there's no entrance fee ........though 1 1/2 hours walking around was enough.

This is the #1 attraction in the Chonburi/ Bangsaen area. A lesson in the wages of sin and too gruesome for many, too strong a reminder of their own guilty sins for others. The largest collection of Buddhist folk art in Eastern Thailand, having Saints as well as Devils, sculptures of the life story of Buddah, folk tales and a... More

This Temple shows what will happen to you if you do bad things. Some of the statues are a little graphic, such as corkscrew going though someones middle if you do a bad thing, but it is a good educational tool for kids. Shows in graphic detail what will happen to you if you steal, or lie or do a... More

Fun little temple with graphic images of "Hell" and Buddha. Also a pond where you can throw bread to the fish or turtles . You can buy some souvenirs too. It's not large and will not take long to go around so if you are local or doing other things in the area it is worth a visit but if... More

Some Thai friends of mine recommended to me to visit this temple, they said I would find it both enlightening and amusing, and they were certainly correct on both counts. I have now been there twice, as the first time I didn't have a decent camera with me, so on returning to Thailand I just had to go back and... More

A nice and unique garden with teachings behind every figurine. Tucked in a secluded area off Sai 2 of Saen Suk. Once you enter, you will be guided to a path where the birth of Buddha's story is explained. Further in is where 'hell' is, showing you different types of punishments you will get with every wrongdoing. There are some... More

They say that what you make on earth can be your heaven or hell. What if, according to the Buddhist Karmic belief that Heaven and Hell exists within the text of reality in the after life? They also say that what you do while here on earth is retributive in the afterlife seven fold. How would we want our afterlife... More

If you're coming across this hell temple and wondering 'how have I never heard of these before...?' you're not the only one. Wat Saen Suk is perhaps the best known, but is merely one of dozens scattered across the country. It's a fine day trip from Bangkok or Pattaya, and one of the only ones with good English signage. Still,... More
