The Gates of Sirion by Ted Nasmith.

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]
