    adverbial relative pronoun

    I saw this sentence somewhere.
    'Put the books where they belong.'
    It looks somewhat incomplete.
    I think it is broken down as follows; Put the books + at the place to which they belong
    Since 'the place to which' can be replaced by 'where', the result should be 'Put the books at where they belong'.
    Do I get something missing or wrong in my thought?

    Yes.

    Where = at/in/on the place at/in/on which.

    The idea of the prepositions is contained within the word itself.
