One of three annual celebrations held on the summit of the Meneltarma in the heart of Númenor (the others being the Erulaitalë and the Eruhantalë). The Erukyermë was held at the beginning of each spring. The King, followed by a silent crowd, would climb the mountain on foot, and at its peak utter a prayer for the approaching year. Traditionally, three Eagles, known by the Númenóreans as the Witnesses of Manwë, would hover over the King and his people at this time.
