The Wells of Varda were the places that Varda stored the dews and rains from the Two Trees of Valinor in the time that they lived.

They were located in Valmar surrounding Ezellohar and were probably many in number.[1]


They were made by Varda after the Two Trees were flourishing in Valinor for some time. All the inhabitants of the sacred realm drew light and refreshment from them.

Later, when Melkor and Ungoliant descended upon the trees and destroyed them, Ungoliant drank the wells dry. And after their light was gone there was none left in Valinor save for in the Silmarils.[2][3][4]

Notes Edit

  • The wells could have been referenced from the creation of sea in the bible as the Earth was wet with water and then dried to create land.
