The title, the Wang Saen Suk Hell Garden, is very apt. A large open area in a temple yard full of statues of what you can expect if you stray from the true path of Buddhism. The statues are made of, I would think, of a frame work covered in concrete and some are very gruesome to say the least!... More

Even Hieronymus Bosch with his visit imagination did not conjure up some of the fiendish tableaux here at The Wang Saen Suk Hell Garden. In fact, Torquemada and his Holy Inquisitors would have learned a trick or two if they could have paid a visit here. This is a Buddhist temple designed to illustrate the joys of following in the...

A Buddhist destination not far away from Si Racha. It is a park tucked away from the main road, with really scary statues of people been punished/killed when they do not follow the proper rules of life and Buddhism. The park is really educational and opens one mind. Since there are no taxis, one can only reach the park by... More

The Hell garden in the Wat Wang Saen Suk showing the gruelling punishments in afterlife in (Buddhist) hell (with lots of English explanations), peaceful life in heaven, Thai proverbs and a whole set of Chinese gods. My Thai friend told me that it scared the hell out of her when she was visiting as a kid.

If you want to see something freaky and unusual, this is a must visit. Most people skip Chonburi and head to Pattaya but if you have time, definitely come to Chonburi and take a tour of the hell garden. You learn about what happens to people when they do bad things. I've lived in Thailand for 20 years and I... More

The gruesome depictions of hell are unusual and there is also a lot of very interesting Buddhist folklore statues. I think that it's worth going to...and there's no entrance fee ........though 1 1/2 hours walking around was enough.

This is the #1 attraction in the Chonburi/ Bangsaen area. A lesson in the wages of sin and too gruesome for many, too strong a reminder of their own guilty sins for others. The largest collection of Buddhist folk art in Eastern Thailand, having Saints as well as Devils, sculptures of the life story of Buddah, folk tales and a... More

This Temple shows what will happen to you if you do bad things. Some of the statues are a little graphic, such as corkscrew going though someones middle if you do a bad thing, but it is a good educational tool for kids. Shows in graphic detail what will happen to you if you steal, or lie or do a... More
