The Hell – Place of punishment

The Hell is a place of punishment after death or,  a state of spiritual damnation. In religions and mythologies that separate the dead according to their conduct in life or the purity of their souls, the evil go to hell while the good go to heaven. In Indian Mythology Garuda Purana is one of the eighteen Puranas which are part of the Hindu body of texts known as smriti. It is a Vaishnava Purana and the epic is in form of conversation between Lord Vishnu and Garuda (King of Birds), primarily emphasizing the reason and meaning of Human Life form. Garuḍa asks the Lord to explain Yama’s kingdom.  The Lord not only begins to describe Yama’s kingdom, but also begins to describe the procedure to be followed immediately after death.
