It’s a sad shadow of its former self and one wonders how much longer it will exist. Everything could do with a fresh coat of paint and a good clean up - lots of stagnant water so watch out for mosquitoes

It's a great laugh and very enjoyable. Check out the 10 Courts of Hell; quintessential learning for any child.

Had some time to spare and decided to go here. A bit random. Much bigger than expected, a good insight into old myths and legends. Could do with a few more signs explaining some bizarre scenes though! Recommended for something a bit different.

This is worth seeing. Cultural gem. It is free, it is old school. The ten courts of hell is a bit unsettling. Not that it is creepy to visit as much as the folklore behind it. This is a good insight into old Chinese folklore,...More

It is free to enter this park and it was built by the founder of Haw paw cooperation (tiger balm pain relieving ointment). It is near to mrt station. We can study Chinese legends by sculpture. It is a good place to take photos, too.
