Stone Face Monoliths of Ngarchelong State

Stone Face Monoliths of Ngarchelong State

  • 0 Stars.

 

On the grassy flats along the eastern coastline

of Ngarchelong sit 37 ancient monoliths.

Many of them have carved faces.

The purpose of the monuments

and when they were constructed are still unknown.

However,

some experts believe the monoliths were built in 100 AD.

 

Even Palauan legends offer more than one

explanation for these mysterious monoliths.

According to one version,

the pillars are actually the foundation

of a Bai meeting house that was being built by the gods.

 

The largest of the stones weigh 5 tons.

What makes the stone monoliths

even more intriguing is the fact

that the stones did not originate from Palau.

This meant the materials used to build the stones were imported.

 

Aside from the stones,

the views around the monolith are strikingly beautiful.

For these reasons,

Badrulchau in Babeldaob has become

one of the major tourist attractions in Palau.
