It is interesting to see where all the Tongan Kings are buried, but you only need a short time, as you cant get too close. It is close by the Free Church, so worth having a look.

in a big field across the road from the free church of Tonga, it was all fenced so you couldn't get very close to them

Unfortunately we couldn't get into the tomb area as it was all locked up. Locals advised it's not open to the public very often any more. As a tourist attraction there is nothing really to see that can't be seen from just driving by. Unless...More

As the central field is considered so tapu it is well fenced off and so difficult to see up close, but you can just recognise statues of past rulers.

While this attraction is interesting it is only worth a drop by if you have some time to kill. The inability to get close prohibits an outstanding experience.

The tombs are impressive and seem well looked-after from afar. But you cannot get close. To see if you have time to kill

Not really a destination...more of a take a look as you are passing. It is a large open green space with royal graves on it. No history or tours (although I'm sure locals can tell you about it?) We simply admired it from the bus...More

The Royal Tombs another attraction that you should see if you are taking a tiki tour around Tongatapu. Try to do some reading up before hand so it means something to you.

We walked through the area and saw the tombs of the kings and their families. There was nothing to read and no family photos. We pretty much had to read about them after we left.
