A kava ceremony, floor show and refreshments are also included. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach for the short drive back to the pier.

A plaque commemorates the event, and a banyan tree grows nearby, a descendant of the great banyan that the English explorer is said to have rested under. See the terraced tombs of Tonga, which according to legend, were built to accommodate the kings. As they were considered half man and half god, they were buried in raised tombs, between heaven and earth. Nearby is the Haamonga Trilithon, an ancient archway made with three massive limestone slabs. Its exact origin or purpose is unknown.


Royal Tombs

Next, continue with a drive to the Royal Palace, an ornate wooden building constructed in the 1860's for the royal family and the Royal Tombs, which was first used as a burial ground for King Tupou 1 in 1893. The area is known as Mala'e Kula or 'red ground', a reference to a festival in which everyone wore red, held here prior to the land becoming a cemetery.
