Easter Island Sights

Ahu Huri a Urenga

  • Archaeological Site/Ruins

Updated 12/02/2014

Fodor's Review

One of the few ahus to be erected inland, Ahu Huri a Urenga appears to be oriented toward the winter solstice. Its lonely moai is exceptional because it has two sets of hands, the second carved above the first. Researchers believe this is because the lower set was damaged during transport to the ahu.
