  • 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.
  • Magic place
  • Tonga
  • Tonga's huge dolmen can watch.
