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. Put Stone Monoliths and other Koror attractions into our Koror holiday planner, and watch your holiday take shape.
