There are 2 parts in this location. Hell and Heaven. To teach Buddhist to do good things and show how we get if do bad things.The place on each section has Thai and English explanations which were helpful. No entry fee.

Strange place, lots of large statues depicting what happens if you sin against Buddha

Interesting to walk around, the plaques on each statue has Thai and English explanations which were helpful.

Free to get in, good way to spend a couple of hours

Weird but fun

A very pleasant half hour wander around the little lake, check out the statues, feed the fish - and then the highlight, go into the Hell Garden where very gruesome statues depict the punishments for assorted sins on earth!
Maybe scarey for very young children.
Certainly not anything I have seen elsewhere. Worth a visit if you are in Bang Saen.

I have found my way back here again on one of my walks around Bang Saen. I thought it would be just ok, since I have been here several times before. But it was surprisingly good even for a forth visit. I see new things in the displays every time. Still fun and unique

There are 2 parts when arriving at location First one is showing what happens if you do bad things according to Buddhism never see this before in Thailand and been here many times. So if you are nearby then take a look it worh seeing.
The second part is the traditional temple with big pound where you can feed some fish.

Scary but educational

The figures in the garden tells holy stories from the Buddhist Religion about what happens after death to the unfaithful, greedy and violent sinners, killers and other villains.
It’s scary to see, but gives good meaning to a decent life.
Natbriller too tough for little children

If you go to pattaya by travel/van, asked the driver to stopped by at this place,one hour is enough. because this place a little bit difficult to find, but in the same direction if you go to pattaya.

Have you noticed how your country religion and general popular culture can be similar for many of us?

Hell and heaven is not only. an authentic place, visit 97% by locals, but also a place when the magic. of many religions come and mix up together.

if. you are lucky and travel with a Thai person, as your pass the sculptures of the Chinese Zodiac characters, ask them to translate the sculptures sings, about Social rules. It is a eye-opener !

The site, seems to be created for education purposes probably. Its highlight are two 20mts statues showing their togues (punishiment in hell for liying to your parents).

Totally recommend to visit, before a tourist agency explote its potential. :)

Scary and interesting all at the same time

We always like to explore the temples & wats of thailand everytime we visit an area. But this one is by far the scariest & weirdest ive ever seen. As you arrive it looks like most wats you follow a pathway that has beautiful brightly coloured statues adorned with flowers. We payed our respects & took a blessing from the monk. Then.......you see it!!!!....these two enormous concrete statues of a man & women at least 4 to 5 stories high. They have very long tongues that are falling out of their mouths, they are scary. In a circle around them are statues of many figurines with animal heads. As you wonder around the garden it is scattered with statues of buddist beliefs of what may happen to you if you commit unforbidden actions during your lifetime. These statues are confronting & may scare children. I personally was godsmacked & facinated all at the same time.
Elsewhere in the Wat theres a large lake full to the brim with cat fish, you can buy bread rolls & popcorn for around 20baht to feed them. There are the usual stalls selling cheap souvenirs, hats & drinks. As you wonder further there are some very unusual statues of super heroes & the gang from monkey the much loved tv show. Its true see m y pictures or go see for yourself!
As we were leaving there is a giant buddha with a well rubbed belly button where you can insert coins.
Im really glad we found it & visited this Wat, its not for everyone but i found it fascinating.

The statues are just disgusting. Who would want that crap as their monuments? Show what the Burmese did to the thai people if you're going to go this rout.
