Dáin's hall was the dwelling of Durin's Folk in the Grey Mountains, the name coming from the Dwarf-king Dáin I.[1]


Little is known about this hall save that in T.A. 2589,[2] Dáin was killed by a great Cold-Drake along with his son Frór at the entrance to the hall.[1] A year later, most of Durin's Folk (though not all)[1] abandoned the mountains, and left for Erebor and the Iron Hills lead by Thrór and Grór, respectively, Dáin's other two sons.[1]
