Probably most people look at Ahu Tongariki as one of the most famous and most impressive Ahu and don't take the time to walk around a little bit. If you do, you can find these carvings all around, and it's interesting to see the Birdman here as well, which underlines the fact that Orongo had to be an island-wide important city with the birdman ritual being known among all the tribes. Some of them are hard to spot, but they are all around on the rocks in front of the Ahu.
Directions: See map attached as photo.
If you are facing the Ahu, the carvings will be behind you (between the Ahu and the road) all around. Look for them, but don't step on them!
