|Area:||The East Wall|
Called the "Hill of the Ear", Amon Lhaw is a high hill of the Emyn Muil situated on the eastern bank of Nen Hithoel, where the southward rushing waters of the Anduin River plunge over the Falls of Rauros. Along the western bank lay another high hill, Amon Hen - the "Hill of the Eye" - and these two landmarks were a pair.
At the top of Amon Lhaw was an old Gondorian fortification, generally known by the same name. Within lay the Seat of Hearing, an enchanted relic of the past which allowed some skilled users to hear what occurred at other locations. It matched in relative power the might of it's sister fortification, Amon Hen's, Seat of Sight. Once used to watch over the northern bounds of Gondor, the watchtowers have fallen into neglect as they are now rarely visited or used by their creators.
There is at least one major difference between these two landmarks at present - Amon Lhaw is now under the Enemy's control.
