What an extraordinary place, I loved it

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... read 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

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

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
