Gateways To Hell; How Many And Where Are They Located?

Houska Castle
Houska Castle

This is a topic that for whatever reason, I am extremely fascinated by and interested in.

It has been mentioned through out history and in folklore that the Earth contains gateways or passageways leading to Hell. I know of at least one, and that is Houska Castle in The Czech Republic.

My question is, how many other gateways or passageways leading to Hell are there and where are they located? Thanks!

Here we have some basic information about the Houska Castle:

“Huska castle, and most specifically the chapel, has been constructed over a large hole in the ground that is supposedly ‘The Gateway to Hell’, which was said to be so deep no one could see the bottom of it.

Half-animal-half-man creatures were reported to have crawled out of it, and dark winged creatures flew in its vicinity.

Houska castle was built with no fortifications, no water, no kitchen, near no trade routes, and with no occupants at its time of completion. The castle was not built as a residence or as a protective sanctuary, but was instead built because the hole was thought to be a gateway to hell. Thus, by constructing the Gothic building, they were able to keep the demons trapped in the lower level thickest walls closest to the hole of the castle”

Does Hell Truly Exist?

Hey all

So this may sound like a dumb question, but I have my reasons for asking this.

Dante’s Vision of Hell

Does hell truly exist?

My reason is this:

I’m not extremely familiar with the bible but I know my way around it. I believe in eternal reoccurrence, which is also a teaching of the bible by the way (ECC 1:9) “that which was, is what shall be and that which is done is that which shall be done and there is no new thing under the sun”

(The bible seems to go around in circles too – but I’m not going into detail)

We are made of energy and anybody can tell you that energy can’t be destroyed.

I believe in the awesome power of “God”, because it is the one infinite power controlling our never-ending madness of death and rebirth, but somehow I can’t wrap my head around the over-exaggerated tale of hell, and sinners burning and being tortured endlessly in a pit of fire. It doesn’t seem to fit into anything.

Was this just a false teaching the Catholic church made up to control the masses with fear? If it does exist, could it be possible that it is located on another “place” on Earth (not a physical place – if you know what I mean)

I don’t doubt the existence of spirits and demons – I have way too many experiences behind my back to even doubt, but the typical thought of hell is just too far fetched for my liking.

Any thoughts?
