Temple of Hell and Paradise (Wat Saen Suk) in the resort city of Bang Saen

It has long been going to get into the temple of Hell and Paradise, especially after Buddha Park Sala KeoKu, but this trip was only lastarrival in Thailand. Moreover, she did not want to take shape either in time or in health. It happens so often with me, although maybe I'm just lazy. In general, I did visit this temple, about which everyone writes that it is creepy and scary, and supposedly it is better for the faint of heart to not even look at the photos. Honestly, I’m so burned up, or the people around are too impressionable. I walked for about an hour and looked at various figures, and I did not see anything so terrible. Maybe my fantasy is tight?

Temple of Hell and Paradise or Wat Saen Suk

Talk about the temple itself, and nothing, there's moresay a photo than words. The territory of the temple is divided into two parts: hell and heaven. Accordingly, in the first one there are figures of sinners who are tortured for sins in various ways, and in the second, on the contrary, all those who are more lucky and who have enough moral strength and wisdom not to sin. Why, I was not impressed with these “horrors”, but because the sculptures there are not very real, well, that is, they do not look like people, like comics with some fictional characters you look, you do not identify yourself with them. But too impressionable, perhaps the truth is not worth watching. By the way, for some reason in photographs it looks more scary than it actually is, maybe the Thai fertile atmosphere calms, I don’t know.

Most of the park is exactly Hell. The central place in it is occupied by two huge figures of a man and a woman of a rather unpleasant appearance. About them in a circle are other figures with the heads of different animals. Each animal means one of sins, you can immediately figure out what will happen to you, the benefit of the inscription in English. Nearby is the boiler, where "frozen" sinners are cooked.

I didn’t take pictures of all the figures.many different, I think, and so you can get an idea about the temple of Hell and Paradise in Thailand. There are sketches of heavenly places too, but there are few of them, apparently Buddhists believe that the overwhelming majority do not live a righteous life.

As I understand it, in Wat Saen Suk go tomostly only Thais (although because of the inscriptions in Russian, perhaps this info is outdated) to repent and atone for sins. They have a belief that you need to go to the local Hell, “enjoy the art,” leave a coin, and it seems like it’s already cleared. Each figure has a blue box with a description of sin and the opportunity to pay off. But even those who do not sin are given the opportunity to donate depending on the year of birth. They are also likely to carry their children there to show what happens if they have to eat sweets.

Bang Saen City

Since a separate article about bang saen i writeI will not, then let a few photos from this city be here in the article about the temple. It is difficult to draw any conclusions about the suitability of this place for wintering or a long stop, because I was there only a few hours. But according to the experience of several acquaintances, it is quite possible to live here, especially if you need proximity to Bangkok, got on a minibus and in an hour you are already in the capital. It is also pleasant that the sea is much better here than in Pattaya, and there are still few Russians, like other foreigners, because this is a Thai resort (there are many people on weekends). I read that not everyone manages to find budget accommodation, but he himself did not seek. Housing can be viewed on the service RoomGuruwhere it is convenient to compare hotel prices in different booking systems.

How to get to the temple of Hell and Paradise

Getting to Bang Saen from Bangkok
Earlier, until October 2016, the easiest way to get to Bang Saen is from the subway station Victory Monument. It was necessary to go out, see belowpandemonium of minivans and say "Baan San". Now there is no such joy - all the minivans were dispersed through the state bus terminals. So you need to either go straight to Ekkamai, from which flights depart to the east, or cheat.

Considering that the illegal bus station at VictoryThe monument functioned for several decades, and hundreds of thousands of people come here out of habit, the Bangkok government provided citizens with free shuttles to the bass terminals. Shuttles run from Chatuchak to Mo Chit 2 and from the monument to Sai Tai Mai and Ekkamai every day from 5:30 to 20:30 every 20 minutes. Shuttle to Sai Tai May starts even at 4:30. If you go to the monument to you closer and easier - go there.

Getting to Bang Saen from Pattaya
You will need to go to Sukhumvit and get up aroundany stop. Then we catch a minibus or bus, we call the city, and for 40-60 baht we go to that place (usually planted on the highway), from where the minibus will walk towards the sea and Bang Saen.

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
