Haw Par Villa (Singapore)

Haw Par Villa is a mythological theme park in Singapore.

It contains over 1,000 statues and 150 giant dioramas depicting scenes from Chinese folklore, legends, history and illustrations of various aspects of Confucianism. The most well-known attraction is the Ten Courts of Hell, with gruesome depictions of hell in Chinese mythology, all set in a 60 meter-long trail of a Dragon.

Edit: Parts of Haw Par Villa are abandoned and unfortunately not acessable to the public.
I found some photos online of the weathered and overgrown statues: Link
