The dictator of Turkmenistan, Gurbanguly Berdimuhammedow, ordered the closure of the most famous place in the country: the so-called Gate of Hell.

According to information from the state-owned newspaper Neytralny Turkmenistan, reproduced by CNN, Berdimuhammedow ordered the closure of the tourist attraction for reasons such as negative effects on the health of the surrounding community, waste of natural gas and environmental damage.

There is still no deadline and strategies defined for closing the Porta do Inferno, but the dictator even authorized the hiring of foreign consultants to find a solution.
