Amon Anwar, also known was Halifirien, was the hallowed mountain that stood over the border of Calenardhon and Anórien.

History

The mountain was hallowed because prior to the creation of Rohan, the Tomb of Elendil lay there since his death. After Cirion and Eorl spoke the Oath that bound their lands on the hallowed mountain, Elendil's body was moved to Rath Dínen.

The last of the beacon-hills of Gondor, it was originally named Eilenaer and stood on the borders of the land of Rohan.

Extymology

Amon Anwar means "Hill of Awe" in Sindarin. Halifirien means "Holy Mountain" in Old English.
