Stone Monoliths, Koror

3.0
#15 of 53 in Things to do in Palau
Stand in wonder at the provenance and purpose of the 37 towering carved rocks at Stone Monoliths. The rocks--many of them with faces carved into them--represent a mystery that has long intrigued locals, experts, and visitors alike. Some believe them to date back 2,000 years, and the fact that the tools and materials used to make the monoliths came from elsewhere adds to their enigma. Chat with the attraction's staff for more information about its history. Extensive views from atop the grassy hill on which rocks stand take in the area's natural diversity. Plan a trip to Koror easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

  • It takes about an hour by car from the city of Koror. At the northern end of Babelbaob Island, you pay $10 to the receptionist sitting on the bench at the entrance. From the square where you got out of the car, it's hard to tell where the entrance is, but we went down the stairs to the back. It is recommended that you dress in easy walking because there are stairs. On the way, i think you can see insect plants and so on. It is still unknown who built it for what and how it was built, and it is said that it is a rock structure which does not exist on this island. The imagination swells in various ways.
