The feasting-hall of Minas Tirith. It was here that Aragorn held a welcoming feast for King Éomer on his return to Minas Tirith after the War of the Ring. The name of the Hall comes from Elvish mereth 'feast' and rond, meaning a great cavern or hall. Though the Hall of Feasts isn't explictly described, the word rond in this context suggests that it had a high domed roof.
