the underworld is another word for hell for the most part,or in some beliefs purgatory, which in neither hell or heaven, if u ask from watching riddicle's of riddick, then that might be more comparable to the belief of purgatory, but either way wheather it exists or not is based soley on your own religion or belief.

The Underworld is a place where the gods and goddesses punish beings. By beings I mean humans, titans and other creatures that offended the gods and goddesses. In mythology, the Underworld or Hades is ruled by Hades. Each being has his/her own torture. The Underworld is also supposed to be extremely cold. After the Romans took over they renamed Hades as Pluto and that's why the dwarf planet is so named because its partialy ice and is way below freezing. In common belief the Underworld is called Hell and is ruled by Lucifer with his many demons. Hell is generalized as an eternal inferno, but it in religions it has nine circles each one more worse than the other depending on what the sinner did. Jehovah witnesses believe that Hell is just a huge lake of fire.
