Tonga is home to many unique places, most of which have incredible tales behind them. One of such fabulous places is HaÃÂ»amonga ÃÂ»a Maui that takes you back to the time when stones were used to tell the time.

The monument is said to have been built in the 13th century. The place is a short distance from “esi maka faakinanga” that used to serve as the king's throne. This trilithon resembles the famous sculpture of Stonehenge. According to the natives of Tonga, HaÃÂ»amonga ÃÂ»a Maui has an astronomical significance as it was used for time and direction.
