Tomb of Pomare V

Tomb of Pomare V Review

The tomb of Tahiti's last king—Pomare V (1839–1891)—is built of coral stones in the shape of small lighthouse, which has a red door and is topped with a red Grecian urn. The tomb stands on a point at Arue just off the coastal road. Originally built for his mother Queen Pomare IV, Pomare V had her remains exhumed and his were interred instead when he died only a few years later. A nearby cemetery contains the graves of Pomare I, II, III, and IV.
