Zirak-zigil Durin's Tower 2

Rendition of Durin's Tower used for Peter Jackson's films

Durin's Tower was a tower which stood on the peak of Zirakzigil above Moria to the south of the Redhorn Pass, where Gandalf defeated the Balrog known as Durin's Bane in the Battle of the Peak.[1][2]

It was carved by the Dwarves of Khazad-dûm out of the living rock of the mountain, and could only be reached by the Endless Stair which began in the deep far below the mines.[1][3] During the Battle of the Peak, the tower was completely destroyed, and the stair was blocked with rubble.[1]
