Archaeologists uncover Gateway to the Underworld!
A Gateway to the Underworld has been discovered!
There are still remarkable discoveries awaiting to be discovered in the world! The most recent one is a marvel to the world – and a remarkable find for archaeologists. It is the infamous “Pluto’s Gate” or is being more commonly referred to as the “Gateway to Hell”, and is located in Western Turkey.
The Gateway is said to be a place with a portal to a cave that leads to the Underworld. People were said to be prevented from passing through it thanks to a poisonous deadly fog which flowed forth from the gate. In ancient texts, Greek historian Strabo described the gate as a place where:
“Any animal that passes inside meets instant death. I threw in sparrows and they immediately breathed their last and fell”
Today the ancient Greek site is a pile of ruins, but the gateway is still there. Evidence of the nearby entrance is provided by the deadly fog. Archaeologists say that the place is still filled with a thick mist of deadly fumes that obscures vision. On the ground, there are the bodies of unfortunate birds who flew into the mist to their deaths. Digital recreations of the site show that at one point a temple and pool stood at the entrance to the portal.
