Nísinen

(Redirected from Nisinen)

Nísinen was the long thin lake that formed along the lower course of the River Nunduinë, above the haven of Eldalondë on Númenor's western coast.[1] Along its banks grew all manner of sweet-smelling plants, and so it got its name - Nísinen comes from the Elvish for 'fragrant water'.[2]
