Flanking each side of the road that leads to the main gates of Edoras lie the mounds of the Kings of Rohan, exactly as described by Tolkien.
At the foot of a walled hill the way ran under the shadow of many mounds, high and green. Upon their western sides the grass was white as with a drifted snow: small flowers sprang there like countless stars amid the turf.
"Look!" said Gandalf. "How fair are the bright eyes in the grass! Evermind they are called, simbelmynë in this land of Men, for they blossom in all the seasons of the year, and grow where dead men rest. Behold! we are come to the great barrows where the sires of Théoden sleep."
"Seven mounds upon the left, and nine upon the right," said Aragorn.
