Buddhist Hell in Thailand- parential guidence suggested
After a morning at the lake, I, Pan, and friends decided to stop off at Hell on the way home.
Hell was constructed by Monks in order to coerce children into good behavior and a reminder to adults as to what will happen to them after death if they do not lead a good life. On
weekends Hell has many visitors. Among them are a large number of children, brought by their parents to instill some discipline in them by means of intimidation. Some are terrified and others think it’s better than a trip to the zoo.The entrance to hell is bordered by a long fence with dozens of monkeys perched upon it. One is greeted with a large ghoul with gaping jaws and a tiger with a Buddha sitting on its back. Hell covers several acers with hundreds of exhibits. A number of the exhibits are animated, and with the insertion of a coin, one can watch a head being chopped off or a ghost rising from a moldy coffin.
With Hell there has to be a heaven. The monks are working on it but not yet completed.
We had lunch in Hell. Note the restaurant dog. Good for cleaning up dropped scraps.
Better not die in Thailand or this is what's waiting for you if you aren't a nice person.
