(Somewhat conjectural)1

The mound of Amroth, that stood in the heart of Lórien and held the house of that King before he was lost. It was here that Aragorn and Arwen plighted their troth centuries later.



The geography of Lórien is not well established, and we have no map showing the precise position of Cerin Amroth. The location shown here is based on descriptions in The Lord of the Rings, and may not be exactly correct.
