Opt for a guided tour to learn more about the 13th-century ruler and his kingdom, or discover the impressive monument by following informative postings. Pigs run the grounds freely, and many locals sell their goods nearby.

  • We found these very interesting, trying to figure out what they were used for - there were different theories. They did remind me of Stonehenge.  more »
  • Interesting sun clock. The surrounding grounds are well maintained and it is worth walking down at least one of the pathways to the sea.  more »

  • 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.
