Þingmúli

Þingmúli, (“Meeting moun­tain”) a farm, church and parsonage until 1890, formerly an official meeting place and hence the name of the two counties, Suður–Múlasýsla og Norður–Múla­sýsla. Some ruins from earlier times are still to be seen. Place–names indicate that there was a heathen temple there. A mountain (508 m) of the same name between the valleys. Some fossils found there.
