Gates of Sirion

Ted Nasmith - The Gates of Sirion

The Gates of Sirion was the cavernous mouth in the southern hills of the Andram where the River Sirion emerged from its underground course.[1] The Gates were located three leagues southward of the Falls of Sirion where the river plunged below the Andram south of the Aelin-uial.[2]
