Very briefly, the most popular beleif is that they are in Pennsylvania near the old mental hospital (in the long driveway actually). Apparently many patients escaped and died in the woods. So I now have numerous questions:
Did the gate legend originated from the mental hospital's story (ie. patients died and haunt the place making it hell in some sort of a way) or they suppose that those deaths are actually associated with them gates (ie. patients died because they unintentionally crossed the gates)?
I've also read that the gates of hell are the big red gates in from of the hospital but also heard they were 7 gates so are there 7 gates (including the big red ones) or only one? And if there are 7 is the big red one of them? Sort of confusing...
So far I've read something about the 7 gates that looked like this (excuse my poor memory):
Gate 1- Demonic dogs will come to guard.
Gate 2- You see ghosts/spirits.
Gate 3- You see more and more spirits.
Gate 4- You see demons.
And to this date, supposedly nobody went past the 5th gate. Apparently, anyone who was brave enough to go throught the 4th one despite all what they saw and felt either died or never returned except for one who was greatly traumatized.
Thanks, I am very interested in this legend. I don't really beleive in hell BUT I do beleive in ghosts, haunting and evil entities.
Honestly i've never heard that story, i've heard bout the Gate to Hell and the Three Headed Guard Dog Cerberus. Hm whats the site you got that information from? could you tell us possibly? maybe i can help you research it more tomorrow, i'm out of school for good now so i can research up some stuff, but i've never heard bout the Seven Gates of Hell
