Gate to hell found in turkey

Gate to hell in Turkey, As far as archaeological discoveries go, it's a darker one: Pluto's Gate has reportedly been unearthed in Turkey.

The team behind the dig made the announcement last month, and ANSA and Discovery report on the finding and the Greco-Roman mythology behind the portal: Cicero and Greek geographer Strabo made reference to the entryway to Hell in their writings, and placed it in the ancient city of Hierapolis.

As Strabo explained of the cave opening, which spewed noxious vapors, "Any animal that passes inside meets instant death. I threw in sparrows and they immediately breathed their last and fell."

Italian archaeologist Francesco D'Andria has been examining Hierapolis for years (he formerly claimed he found one of the 12 apostles' tombs there). This time around, he explains his team found the portal "by reconstructing the route of a thermal spring" to the cave; he was also able to identify the ruins of a temple, pool, and steps -- from which pagan pilgrims would watch sacred rites performed at the portal's opening -- referenced in descriptions of the cave.

"We could see the cave's lethal properties during the excavation," he says. "Several birds died as they tried to get close to the warm opening, instantly killed by the carbon dioxide fumes."

  1. Fools of men to think this is a glimse of HELL, nothing found on this earth is near a glimse of the internal life in Hell. What is found is a mear inner core of this planets melting and growing core,Hell is nothing compared to what we will ever encounter on this planet!

  2. I think the Pennsylvania Avenue address gave it away.

  3. I just read a book about a "Gate of Hell" in Turkey, which came out a few weeks before this article was released.

    It's called "Night Will Be No More".
