As we all know, 'Dia de los Muertos' is Spanish for 'Day of the dead', but could anybody tell me what any of the following are in Spanish? I'm not really after a literal translation, rather, I'm wondering what these things are called by the people who actually celebrate the festival of the dead.

'Land of the dead'
'Temple gate / Temple of the dead'
'Ninth Underworld'

Thank you! I'd appreciate any help on this question!

Ah, I believe 'Land of the dead' is 'Tierra de los Muertos'!
