Hell Scenes at Mogok Vipassana Center in Mandalay

Mandalay's Mogok Vipassana center has one room that is dedicated to graphic depictions showing the various Buddhist Hell worlds, as a way to encourage moral behavior and ward off people from committing akusala actions. Here are two photos that show these paintings. The first one first portrays someone who offered food to monks with wrong intention, and a woman who committed adultery. The second one shows someone who spoke false words, and someone who took bribes.
