Visit Royal Tombs to discover evidence of a long-standing Tongan belief that the higher a tomb isoff the ground, the closer the deceased will be to heaven. As a result of this conviction, many of Tonga's elite built their tombs astowers. The Tongans developed different burial practices depending on class, with one layer for commoners, two for nobles, and three for royalty. At this attraction, you'll get a glimpse of the grandeur with which Tonga's royal family is laid to rest. Do keep in mind, however, that the ground surrounding the tombs remains sacred, and visitors must stand at a respectful distance. Visit with a guide to get the full background and history.

Close to town, worth a look but don't worry if you missed it. Can't get very close to the Tombs. These ones are still used by the royals.

フェンスに囲まれた芝生広場の真ん中にモニュメントがあります。王家の墓地は立ち入り禁止ですが、道路からよく見えます。草刈りなどの管理も丁寧にされていました。教会（free church）と隣接しているのでセットで見学することをお勧めします。ただし、教会にも入れません。The monument in the middle of the lawn is surrounded by fences. Cemetery of the Kings is off-limits, but looks good from the road. Management, such as mowing was being polite. It is recommended to visit the set because it is adjacent to the Church (free). However, no church.View original
Pretty cool seeing how the Tongans honour their dead. So colourful and respectful.
One of the must sees in Nuku'alofa.
I like how they built the statue
