Overview of Pohnpaid Petroglyphs

This is the largest petroglyph site in the northwest tropical Pacific islands. There are also petroglyphs on the nearby boulders of metamorphic rock. The petroglyphs on the boulders are different from the ones on the large outcropping. On one large boulder, as plant matter was removed, more petroglyphs were revealed that our local guide had not seen before. There are three mortars at the large metamorphic outcropping site.

Kian R. wrote about Jumhooree Maidhaan:

"Jumhoree Maidhaan, also known as Republic Square is located between the fish market and the main jetties. During the day you can see lots of locals and expats around, especially from India and Bangladesh. It has a few sitting options underneath a couple of trees, making it a perfect rest and relax area after some shopping, and an opportunity to watch people. Tip: avoid the area if you should hear of any demonstrations in Male. It didn't happen recently, but often in 2011/2012.
