Very impressive built rock, its very impressive how the top stone would have been placed. It's well worth a visit the gardens are well maintained and there are public toilets with a small donation asked for.

We found these very interesting, trying to figure out what they were used for - there were different theories. They did remind me of Stonehenge.

Interesting sun clock. The surrounding grounds are well maintained and it is worth walking down at least one of the pathways to the sea.

This is an interesting site. Grounds are really lovely and walking down to the coast is good. Can buy trinkets from locals here.

Ha'amonga'a Maui Trilithon or the Tongan Arch is another attraction that you should see if you are taking a tiki tour around Tongatapu but don't cry if you miss it.

It was about 5:15 when we got to the site. Unfortunately, the fence around the structure was closed and we could only gaze at it from a distance. We couldn't walk up to it or read about it or touch it. Too bad!
