Arahurahu Marae

Religious archeological site. While today’s Polynesian Marae might appear to be simple piles of stones, before Europeans began to colonize the Polynesian islands at the end of the 18th century, these edifices played a fundamental role in traditional society. More than just temples, Marae were the sites where all important decisions were made and were the centers for social, political and religious activities.
