The Gates of the Sun is a landmark within the city of Osgiliath in Eastern Gondor. [63.0S, 11.7W] Within the city of Osgiliath, just inside the gates, lies the Court of Anárion.

Set into the western walls of the city, the Gates of the Sun were a part of the defenses of the city of Osgiliath. Heading out these gates, travellers could ride along the raised causeway over the river's mud flats and swampy terrain, through the Causeway Forts. Eventually they passed through the damaged walls of the Rammas Echor into the farmlands of the Pelennor Fields. Continuing down the road one arrives at Minas Tirith (formerly called Minas Anor) to the southwest, built into the mountainside of Mount Mindolluin at the eastern terminus of the White Mountains.
