    If you think you've had a hard day at the office, then an afternoon at Wat Mae Kaet Noi will make you think again..

    It's a nice peaceful looking Wat,

    You enter through the gates of the "Narok Sawan National Park Mae Gad Noi."

    Wat Mae Kaet Noi is probably Thailand's most gruesome Wat depicting life in Buddhist hell.

    The gardens took 5 years to complete and are the "brain child" of Pra Kru Vishanjalikon.
    The garden is meant to educate people about the Buddhist after life.....behave yourself while you are alive & you will avoid a life in hell afterwards?

    Wat Mae Kaet Noi may well scare the living daylights out of any meek person with it's graphic images. "Sex drugs, rock n roll" probably are not all that good for you after all; plus murder, theft & abortion's are also a confirmed no no.

    Across the street from Wat Mae Kaet Noi is a small coffee shop where you may want to rest both before & after enduring the scenes of Naraka - Buddhist hell

    GTR - IMG_2626.JPG

    In Buddhism, one is first reincarnated over and over and over until one achieves nirvana (or deserves hell). Afterwards, one either enters heaven or hell - Naraka.

    The wise man makes his own heaven while the foolish man creates his own hell here and hereafter.

    Buddhism live by five religious precepts, which forbid murder, stealing, sexual misconduct, lying, and intoxication. Monks, meanwhile, must abide by 227 rules. Those who break them will pay in brutal fashion.
