Journey to Enlightment Signage at Chin Swee Temple, Genting
Taoist/Buddhist/Hindu parents can bring children to this place to teach them about the principles of Reincarnation and leading a Noble Life. A depiction of each of the ten Chambers of Hell line a path that gently winds up a hill that ends at the giant statue of Amitabha Buddha. The walk up the path is named the Journey to Enlightenment because these chambers aim to discourage bad conduct and encourage good moral values by depicting the painful experiences an evil person would encounter in Hell.
In the background, can you see a reflection of a summer palace and myself, especially my hands?
