Statues Of The Damned

"Outside the Prasat sa Kamphaeng Yai temple there is a bizarre collection of concrete lifesize unpleasant characters. I guess this is their vision of hell and that it is there to scare people into the temple...which you can see in the background."

More photos from this unusual park here.
