Stone Monoliths, Koror

3.1
#16 of 38 in Things to do in Palau
Stand in wonder at the provenance and purpose of the 37 towering carved rocks at Stone Monoliths. The rocks--many of them with faces carved into them--represent a mystery that has long intrigued locals, experts, and visitors alike. Some believe them to date back 2,000 years, and the fact that the tools and materials used to make the monoliths came from elsewhere adds to their enigma. Chat with the attraction's staff for more information about its history. Extensive views from atop the grassy hill on which rocks stand take in the area's natural diversity. Plan a trip to Koror easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

  • Megalithic culture of Palau to experience by car takes about 40 minutes from Koror where stone monolith. Expansive ocean views from entrance makes me feel large, beautiful, peaceful sounds on the way to the stone monolith can be reached in about 10 minutes to descend from the Hill. Will exudes the atmosphere of colorful plants. But I'm really just another stone is the stone itself. There is a history I'm Blowin in the wind it's refreshing, you can experience the megalithic culture is to visit Palau please come visit!

  • The view is quite nice, but the attraction itself does not emploga much. They charge $5 to get in, in my point of view is a tour that isn't worth much.
