In Norse mythology, Gimlé (alternately Gimli) is a place where the survivors of Ragnarök are foretold to live. It is mentioned in the Prose Edda and Völuspá and described as the most beautiful place on Earth, more beautiful than the Sun.

In Asgard, the realm of the gods, Gimli is the golden roof of a building where righteous men go when they die.[1]
