|The official entrance is located on an uphill slope that takes you all the way to the very top of the site; other paths leading to sub-routes split from the main path.|
|There are more than 1,000 statues depicted in the villa, all of which are vibrantly colored and still look rather well-maintained. Many of them are very detailed dioramas depicting scenes in Chinese folklore.|
|The imposing entrance to The Ten Courts of Hell, flanked by horse and ox guards. Apparently, this used to take place inside a 60-metre long dragon trail; the pictures here show the entrance in its original glory.|
Getting sawn in half:
...the list of horrors go on. (I actually felt a little sick to my stomach just walking through the cavern.) You can go here to read a more extensive and detailed list on the Courts of Hell, but really, nothing beats walking through that hellhole and looking at the hundreds of mutilated plastic bodies laid out before you first hand.
|The rest of the villa really isn't so bad though!|
|Pictures like this, for example. Now we're definitely going to have a lot of good luck coming our way, thanks a lot Mich|
