Rath Celerdain was a wide street in Minas Tirith.


The street was located on the first level, or lower circle, of Minas Tirith, directly behind the Othram running along near the Great Gates. The Old Guesthouse was located on this street just west of the Great Gates.[1] Pippin walked along here on his way to the Old Guesthouse.[2]


Rath Celerdain was Sindarin for 'street of the lamp-makers', or 'Lampwrights' Street' in Westron.[3]
