Wat Phai Rong Wua – Supun Buri – Part 1

For this day’s adventure, we head north to Supun Buri to visit a temple which could be said to be one of the most bizarre temple complexes in Thailand. Part of the temple grounds is a simulation of the Buddhist idea of heaven and hell and what happens when you die.

Mostly unknown to the Western world, Wat Phai Rong Wua is a popular destination for Buddhists, who flock here every year. Known as the location of the largest metal-cast Buddha figure in the world, and of the Palace of a Hundred Spires, Wat Phai Rong Wua also houses dozens of sculptures of people being tortured by demons and various monsters. Some are poked in the face with tridents, while others suffer, with their insides hanging out, in the jaws of giant monsters. There’s blood everywhere and loudspeakers around the complex describe the tortures these sinners have to undergo. Too bad the narration is in Thai because it could be quite scary if it was in English.
