First Hall

Revision as of 03:13, 10 November 2011 by Dwarf Lord (Talk | contribs)

The First Hall of Khazad-dûm was on the eastern side of the Misty Mountains, above the Dimrill Dale and apparently the first hall built by Durin I. The East-gate of Moria led right into the First Hall, and from this space there was a wide passage and stairs leading to the Bridge of Khazad-dûm, the Second Hall, and the rest of the city. In contrast to much of Khazad-dûm, the First Hall was brightly lit due to high windows on the eastern side.[1]
