Then said Gangleri: "Where is the chief abode or holy place of the gods?"
Harr answered: "That is at the Ash of Yggdrasill, there the gods must give judgment every day."
Then Gangleri asked: "What is to be said concerning that place?"
Then said Jafnharr: "The Ash is greatest of all trees and best. Its limbs spread out over all the world and stand above heaven. Three roots of the tree uphold it and stand exceeding broad: one is among the Aesir; another among the Rime-Giants, in that place where aforetime was the Yawning Void; the third stands over Niflheim, and under that root is Hvergelmir, and Nidhoggr gnaws the root from below.
