The Seat of Seeing as seen in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

The Seat of Seeing, also known as the Seat of Amon Hen, was an ancient stone chair at the summit of Amon Hen. Surrounded by a battlement in the midst of a flat stone circle, the seat was built atop four carven pillars and was reached by a long staircase.[1]

History

The Seat of Seeing was established at the northern frontier of the kingdom of what would become Gondor by the Men of Númenór. It was made in the days of the great kings,[2] though it is unclear precisely at what time. It may have also been modified or upgraded by the time before the rule of the Stewards of Gondor and the construction of the Argonath.[3]

At the time of the War of the Ring it too, like Amon Sûl, had long been abandoned and fallen into ruin. The last remaining feature of this once-extensive building was the high seat itself, an observation point situated at the top of the hill and overlooking the River Anduin, which lay far below. It was as this time that Frodo Baggins came upon the seat following his encounter with Boromir and was enabled to see several locations great distances away, including Minas Tirith and Barad-dûr.[1]
