  Moria (Middle-earth) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Tolkien 's fictional world, Middle-earth, Moria (also known as Khazad-dûm, The Black Chasm, The Black Pit, Dwarrowdelf, Hadhodrond, and Phurunargian) is the name given to the underground city, mines, and connected tunnels that run through the central Misty Mountains.
Unknown to the Fellowship, both Gandalf and the Balrog survived the fall and fought a ferocious battle from the depths of Moria to the mountains above, demolishing the top of the legendary Endless Stair and a part of the surrounding mountain peak in the process.
It is told however that Durin VII and Last may have re-founded Moria, and retrieved what he could of his people's once-mighty riches, but many Dwarves seem to have remained at the Iron Hills, Aglarond, and the refounded Kingdom under the mountain at Erebor.
