Overview of Lelu Ruins Historic Park

The Lelu ruins are a historic site of great importance. Visually, they qualify as a 'Wonder of the Pacific.' along with Nan Madol (Pohnpei) and Easter Island's statues. Historically, it was the capital or ruling center of Kosrae, a feudal society which was at the pinnacle of complex political development in prehistoric Micronesia (similar to Hawaiian and Tongan societies in Polynesia). Kosrae's society had a great influence not only on Kosrae, but on Pohnpei and probably Chuuk (Truk).

Walking around Lelu Island you'll see only a sleepy waterfront village. An uninformed visitor might never know that behind a 'modern' wall of houses, stores, and breadfruit trees lies one of the most impressive archaeological sites in all the Pacific Islands.

Immense walls of coral and basalt stand over the remains of a royal city's canals, temples and royal tombs. Once inside these impressive walls, you're in an ancient, hidden city, the kind of isolated setting you might imagine trekking hours through dense jungle to find. These walls transport you 500 years back in time where you just might feet the presence of the Togusra protecting his kingdom.

Kay J. wrote about Shirven Hotel:

"Shirven Hotel has spacious rooms and a huge lawn that's perfect for parties and romantic weddings. Staying at the hotel takes you to some place where you can relax and just listen to the birds and admire the life in the countryside. I like what they call their rooms - Citrus Splash, Mango Sweet, Guava Delight, and Pineapple Jam. Fely, one of their staff was so gracious to show us around. I would surely recommend Shirven Hotel.
