Ten Courts of Hell.

Haw Par Villa is a huge array of colourful concrete statues that show Chinese mythology and values. It was built in the 1930's by Chinese businessman Aw Boon Haw, whose marketing genius was responsible for a fortune built on selling Tiger Balm. The garden is a wonderful combination of whimsy and violence and colour and artistry.

 

The Ten Courts of Hell show the consequences of earthly acts in the next realm. There are specific punishments for different offences.
