Buddhist Hell and Heaven “Wat Phai Rong Wua” Temple

Hello, My friends?

Sorry, long time no see you. One month ago, I moved from Bangkok to Nontaburi province. I was busy for a while. Starting today, I will continue to write my blog. I have many ideas for blogging. Please stay with me.

Today I want to share my photos and information about interesting Buddhist temples.

Last week, I went to Wat Phai Rong Wua temple in Tambon Bang Ta Then, Amphoe Song Phi Nong. It houses the largest metal cast Buddha image of the world called Phra Phutthakhodom, which has a lap width of 10 meters and a height of 26 meters.

The temple houses the world’s largest cement Buddha image, fronted by the largest gong and alms bowl in the world. 

The Temple has also recreated within its compound locations of significance in the Lord Buddha’s life. These include the places where he was born, reached enlightenment, gave his first sermon, attained nirvana.

Why is this temple interesting?

This temple has built the heaven and hell simulation since the year 1926.

Thai peoples always tell the story to youngsters that people who do good things will get good things when they die and go to heaven. On the other hand, they do bad things and they will go to hell.

This is Land of Hell. I have never seen such clear images portraying Buddhist Hell before.

I never imagined it. So surprised by these statues.

These tall ghosts used to be corrupt peoples. Every sin has its own hell. They titled every sin.

It was scary to look at hell. Also did not expect in Buddhist temple.

Normally, people have to look first at Hell and then at Heaven. But I did not. kk

Then I went to the cemetery with a Buddhist statue in this temple.

Overall, This temple is so calm and so interesting.

Open daily from 8.30 am-5.30 pm.

Hope you like my post. Let me know if you have any questions or comments.

Stay safe and take care!
