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

Take some time and be sure to stroll through this garden. It is just an hour from Pattaya, towards Bangkok. I first became acquainted with the subject of specific punishments for specific sins in Bali and I am interested in this topic. And when I learned of the existence of such a place not far from my place of rest,... More
