One of the better hell temples, but certainly not the only one

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... read 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

If you are looking for an unusual experience.... go here. This place shows you what will happen to you in your next life if various "moral crimes" such as stealing, adultery, and drinking.. The statues are quite graphic so look it up on google pictures to see if you are ok with it before visiting. It`s unique character is reason... More

They have many figures of hell. Many are in terrible executions I did not know peaceful Budda's world has such a side. Dirty and old but interesting place.

This place is a monestary that is devoted to Buddhas life and very explicit show you what will happen in next life if you don't follow the guidelines of buddhism. Been here a couple of times, easily reachable by car or songthaem on Second road.

Please check the internet before visiting, so you can decide if this is your kind of attraction. Even wikipedia has a page dedicated to this Hell Garden.

First, it's far north from Pattaya, need waste your precious time. There are too many funny sculptures with blood. It shows what is hell. It's just a joke. Big turtles are swimming in the pond. By the entrance gate, there's a richman statue, you can insert coins into the hole. I suggest you not to waste your time.

It's not for everyone, but if you can make the day trip or book a night near Bangsaen (Baan Term Fun Hotel is cheap, clean, and modern), do it. You won't find anything like this anywhere else in the world, and while it's not a "beautiful" temple, it certainly has a pull all its own. On the other hand, I... More

first you think it is misspelled. But it is not! Statues displaying all sorts of bad things humans do and the punishments waiting for thee crimes. Religious place, but very different from temples spread all over Thailand. Free, but you make a small donation.

I had visited this place just for fun but found it showed the Thai people's views of life and death. Well...it was fun though.

I live just down the road from here and take all my visitors. it is very different to anything i have seen in Thaiand, it is gruesome and so not what you expect in this calm and friendly country. there are a lot of English translations. it is all about what happens when you sin. I have often seen children... More
