  • Give your imagination free reign with this ancient puzzle. Almost certainly an astrological clock. It's well-preserved, neat and tidy, good display boards and wonderfully clean toilets! No hazards, no...  more »
  • This has history and is important to Tongans, it was a 5 minute stop and look, our guide told us a bit about it and the history, had a photo and that was about all there was to do. 
  • but not that interesting. It is basically a ancient rock statue but its one of the only kind in polynesia. aka, a place to get stopped for souviers:)

  • It's like taking you back to time. The stone is really a time machine. An old man shared that its more of a clock and a calendar. Tells when the winter is coming or summer. Tell the shortest or longest day in a calendar day. It is amazing. The people of Tonga have their own advanced metrology and computer database. Its a privilege for me to see this rare but unique wonders of the Oceania timeline.
  • Tonga's huge dolmen can watch.
