Bizarre Photographs of Thailand’s Buddhist Hell Garden


Darmon Richter

Down an ordinary road about 60 miles outside of Bangkok you can explore hell. Scenes at Wang Saen Suk, aka Hell Garden, show visitors what happens when you fail to follow the right path of Buddhism. If your bad deeds outnumber your good deeds you’re in deep trouble.

Built in 1986, Darmon Richer took a trip to there. “I take you to Hell for 20 Baht,” said a man on a motorbike. Darmon accepted. And before long he was confronted with scenes of depravity and torture.

In Buddhism ‘Hell’ is known as “Naraka”. The good news is that souls are not there for all eternity, rather for as long as it takes for their bad deeds (negative karma) to be exorcised. How long that takes depends on how bad you’ve been. But any moment is too long, The place is drenched in blood and suffering.
