Discover Tahiti's Marae
Ancient Polynesians built temples, known as marae, as places to worship their gods. Comprised of various stone and block structures, these religious sites are found on most of the Islands of Tahiti. In Tahiti itself, you'll fine four different marae sites, including Arahurahu at PK 22.5, which is a restored construction of dry stones. Beyond acting as a place of worship in ancient culture, this particular marae was used for important events from war councils to weddings to celebrating battle victories.
