Chinese version of hell is complex and multi-layered. And this can be seen at Donyue Temple, one of 2 "Hell" temples in Tainan. This is a small but very atmospheric (read: eerie) temple. The 2 large scary statues of the Hell's guard welcome visitors at the entrance. On its walls and rooftops are paintings and motifs representing scenes from hell. Faithfuls come here to communicate with the dead through the mediums, and to perform ritual to dispel bad luck.

This is one of the two "Hell" Temples in Tainan, the city of Temples. The Chinese have a complex and interesting version of hell and there are many stories to be told inside this temple. Just make sure you go along with a local to explain everything!
