Fodor's Review

Beautifully restored and maintained, this ancient religious site is the most spectacular on the island and is used as a backdrop for historical reenactments during the July Heiva festival. There is a large stone tiki (god-like image) in the grounds and legend says that the spirit of a warrior, who was cremated here, still lingers.
