Ha'amonga'a Maui Trilithon or the Tongan Arch is another attraction that you should see if you are taking a tiki tour around Tongatapu but don't cry if you miss it.

This is basically a structure of three large stones; basically a mini Stonehenge. It's worth seeing for the historic significance. I wasn't shown very clearly on my maps and took a bit of finding.

Very interesting location. I would have hate to be on the loosing side when the tribes where at war. Fate was not pleasant.
