Also called the Gates of Argonath and the Pillars of the Kings. Early in the Third Age, the cliffs on each side of the Anduin River at a narrow point were carved into giant figures of Isildur and Anárion. Each of the figures had it's left hand raised in a warning gesture. In the right hands was an axe, and on the heads was a combination of helm and crown.
Beyond the figures, the river widens again. This was where the lawn of Parth
Galen and the hills of Amon Hen and Amon Lhaw were to be found.
