Sunrise in Ahu Tongariki
The Ahu Tongariki, located in the Bay of Hotu Iti, is considered one of the largest ceremonial structures in Polynesia.

Its platform measures 250 meters long by an average of 5 meters high at its back that faces the coast. It has 15 statues 6 to 9 meters high, originally crowned by red slag hats. This ceremonial center is oriented to the rising sun of the summer solstice and every morning, in absolute silence, its statues await one of the most impressive sunrises of the Navel of the World.
