Infamous Gate to Hell Found in Turkey

MISSING FOR CENTURIES, A STORIED gate to hell was recently uncovered, where poisonous air still breathes out of a cavern where priests once worshiped the gods of the underworld.

Known as Pluto’s Gate, or Ploutonion in Greek, the entry to the land of the dead was discovered in southwestern Turkey by a group of Italian archeologists. Its excavation was announced, with remains of its temple, pool, and steps leading down to the ceremonial cave all matching historical stories about the infamous “gate to hell.” Priests in trippy trances from the fumes would stand on these steps and carry out rituals, and sometimes dramatically lead sacrificial bulls inside, only to pull their lifeless bodies out soon after.

    I thought the gate to hell was in Mecca. Although I’m sure there are plenty of roads to get there.

    I don’t know the precise location, but I can tell you the road is paved with “good intentions”.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
