Ilmarin was the dwelling-place of Manwë and Varda on the high peak of Taniquetil, among the mountains of the Pelóri. The Hill of Ilmarin, then, was a name for the mountain beneath those mansions. The word 'hill' here is used poetically: actually Taniquetil was not merely a mountain, but the tallest of all the mountains of the World.
