The most eye-catching ancient building in Nukualofa is the royal palace built in 1867. The red roof and white main body make this three story building look grand and elegant. The successive monarchs of Tonga hold the coronation ceremony here. The palace arch "haanmenga" on the outskirts of Nukualofa was built with three huge stones.

The sundial, marked with astronomical data such as the time of sunrise, is made of 40 tons of huge stones, which is the embodiment of Tongan people's astronomical knowledge.
