Going Down To Wang Saen Suk Hell Garden

The real attraction at Wang Saen Suk is the section in the back that has many, many scenes depicting what will happen to you should you stray from a clean, pious life. Welcome to Buddhist Hell, baby. From the looks of the installation, there's plenty of room for everyone.

The welcome party. The big peeps are Nai Ngean and Nang Thong. They did horrible things like violating the five precepts of Buddhism and immoral sexual acts. You can guess which one got to play the whore. Hint: it's tradition. And the pregnant stomach.

Moving on. Sexual infidelity is a favorite topic. You sleep with someone other than your spouse, you're going to get some painful groin action.
This is a tourist attraction for the whole family? Yes!

Sometimes, it's not clear what you've done. Here, you've violated the Buddhist precept of "killing and the mind without loving-kindness." What? Murder? Being mean? No matter, they hack your chest, beat you senseless and dump your body for the birds to eat. Oh, and by then you may have a pig or lizard head. Let's just say you're not going to be handed a warning.

Back to abusing women, no torture unused. A boob job for the promiscuous, a torso tuck with a giant vice for seeking an abortion. Which sort of seems like the punishment is the same as the crime. Details, details...

One of the funnier punishments, getting your face shoved to your stomach. And then walked like a dog.

The face is a good punching bag, full of pained expressions and blood. When in doubt, shove a foot on it.

Or go for a massive tongue pull, complete with a menacing tool. Nasty.
