I'd be interested to know about the mentions of portals in mythologies. By portals, I mean accesses/gates towards other locations, worlds, dimensions. I've found this notion several times but in my knowledge few "portals" per se have been given a name.

Thank you for your help.

  • Are you thinking in a more precise definition of portal? Would the rainbow bridge in Nordic myths or the world tree Yggdrasil count ?

  • Can't you cite any of the several times you found that notion? I suggest it's rather rare, at best. Can you say how 'few "portals" per se' is different from plain old 'few portals'? May 14 at 23:56
