Location and Lore

Orodruin (Mount Doom), is an area within The Plateau of Gorgoroth.
The Sammath Naur ("Chambers of Fire"), located high up Orodruin's cone, was a tunnel made by the Dark Lord Sauron in the Second Age.
From the entrance to these chambers, on the eastern side of the volcano, Sauron's road led downwards and around the cone, traversing some 30 miles westward to the tower of Barad-dûr.
Sammath Naur comprised a tunnel leading to an interior platform with molten lava below it, known as the Cracks of Doom.
During the Second Age, it was here where the One Ring was originally forged by Sauron, and the only place where it could be destroyed.
Orodruin and the Cracks of Doom represents the endpoint of Frodo Baggins' quest to destroy the One Ring.
