Vai ’a Tare, Water Place of Tare
Vai ‘a Tare is the name given to a place on the eastern side of the Rano Kau crater where there are dozens of quarries and workshops of keho, basalt slabs, which were used to build the houses at the ceremonial center of Orongo. The ancient Rapanui have removed many geological layers of keho during the process of extraction, creating mines up to twenty meters (65 feet) deep in veins of 1.5 meters (5 feet) high.
