Gar Ainion

"Gar Ainion - Place of the Gods" by Sara M. Morello
Gar Ainion, "Place of the Gods", was a structure, apparently a sort of temple, in the south of Gondolin along the Road of Pomps. It was here that Idril and Tuor were wed, in the Place of Wedding. At its middle it was the highest ground of all the city.[1]
