French Polynesia Things to Do: 79 reviews and 75 photos
Inside the Tahiti Museum there is a lot of old Polynesian Art. This picture shows carved figures that would have been found in the Maraes (temples).
I believe all the Maraes were destroyed after the Europeans found the islands and Christianity was introduced as it would have been considered pagan.
To see what a restored Marae looks like, see my tip on Arahurahu Marae.
Address: Poste Kilometre (PK) 15.1 on the coastal road.
Turn off at Poste Kilometre (PK) 15.1 on the coastal road. After a while you will see a sign telling you which way to go, but the directions could be better!
