The Temple also known as the Temple of Morgoth was built by Sauron for the worship of Melkor during his time in Númenor.

HistoryEdit

Temple stood in Armenelos and was a massive dome that was five-hundred feet across and five-hundred feet high; the walls were fifty feet thick at the base. The Dome was covered with silver but was soon blackened by the smoke of the human sacrifices (one being the burning of Nimloth). The silver dome was cracked by lightning preceding the sailing of the Great Armament, but the Temple itself was not destroyed until the downfall of the Númenor where Sauron's body was caught in the ruins.[1][2]
