Tomb of King Pomare V, Papeete
(1/5 based on 65 reviews on the web)
Take in a piece of Tahitian history at Tomb of King Pomare V, the final resting place of the island's last monarch. Pomare V (1839-1891) originally ordered that the tomb be built for his mother, Queen Pomare IV, but towards the end of his life, he had her remains exhumed and arranged for his own to be interred there. Set just back from the sea, the tomb's coral rocks are now covered in foliage, and its red wood embellishments are faded--both reminders of the monarchy's grandiose history and the passage of time. Arrange to visit Tomb of King Pomare V and other attractions in Papeete using our Papeete itinerary planner.

  • While you are driving around the island you need to keep a sharp eye out for the brown point of interest signs. Not much at some of them but usually interesting. This was one of those. 
  • Last King of Tahiti, his descendants still live on the island. I could just outside visit the place which is a bit far from the Center, Board the bus that will take you to your destination with 1 euro.
