Pluto’s Gate

Pluto’s Gate

Pluto's Gate is an archeological site in southwestern Turkey that was discovered in 2013. The site was a temple that was dedicated to the god of the underworld. It was built on top of a cave which emits toxic gases. Deadly vapors still waft out of this “gate to hell” and it still claims the lives of unfortunate birds that get too close. Ritual animal sacrifices were common at the site. Tourists are forbidden to get too close to this site.
