The Naith of Lórien or Gore was the heart of the Elven realm of Lórien, where the Caras Galadhon was located.

The Naith was located in the angle between the rivers Silverlode and Anduin.[1][2]


The Naith was where the Fellowship first encountered the sentinels of Lórien and through which they were led to the Lord and Lady in Caras Galadhon, and where Frodo first experienced the feeling of having entered a corner of the Elder Days.[3]


Naith is a Sindarin word which means "angle".[4]
