Gateway to hell

If you are looking for the highway to hell, your search is over. The Australian reports that Italian archeologists believe they have found it in southwestern Turkey.

An ancient cave called Plutonium, believed to be the portal to Hades in Greek and Roman myth, was uncovered at the ancient site of Hierapolis.

“This is an exceptional discovery as it confirms and clarifies the information we have from the ancient literary and historic sources, Alister Filippini, a researcher in Roman historian at the University of Palermo, Italy told Discovery News.

The new discovery features a temple, a pool, and multiple steps that once descended into the hell.

The temple was believed to be in use until the 6th century when it was destroyed by Christians.
