Within the circles of the Máhanaxar were the thrones of the Valar where they passed judgment. Here Melkor was judged and sentenced for his evils. It was also where the great Ñoldorin elf Fëanor was judged for his deeds in Tirion and where he spoke to the Valar of his intentions, after the killing of his father at the hands of Melkor.
- Manhanaxar could have been based off Mount Olympious in the Greek religion were the Greek Gods councilled over the fate of the Earth.
