Ondolinde map close up - city center by Sirielle Ondolinde map close up - city center by Sirielle
Close up of my map of Gondolin - the center of the city, with the Arch of Ingwë (well, I made it as a gate inspired by domes of Hindu temples; this is how I imagine Vanyarin architecture), Gar Ainion (the Place of the Gods), the Place of the Well (the Square of the Folkwell) and the king's palace. I also placed the House of the Wing right by the palace and the House of the Heavenly Arch north of the well.

There are also statues of Finwë, Argon, Fingon and Fingolfin (quite in line, counting from the bottom).

Bullet; Purple Bullet; Purple Bullet; Purple  Updated version with blue water and larger area of the center (28 XI 2017).

I hope to make a color version one day in the future :fingerscrossed:

I love it! I especially like the fountains and pools all through the city. Absolutely fascinating... I think I might have to base a painting or two off of this schematic. Incredible work.

Beautiful! Makes me want to attempt a scene from within the walls of the city using your map for guidance! :D

I'd have to think of a scene, and unfortunately I don't have enough time for painting as I'd like right now - but when I do I look back to this for sure!!

Thanks for drawing this - it's wonderful! I would love a labelled version because I have a thing for insanely detailed, labelled maps. The Heavenly Arch, Gar Ainion, and the Palace are easy to identify. The rest, less so.

Great! It is really interesting, you must have put so much work into it. :-)

But I noticed one possible mistake in the labels: I think there is Manwë instead of Mandos at the Gar Ainion. Am I right? ;-)
