Nan Madol: the Coral Reef City

Standard

Coral Reef City

The megalithic city of Nan Madol lies on the eastern shore of the island of Pohnpei in Micronesia acting as a ritual and ceremonial centre for the ruling chiefs of the Saudeleur Dynasty. However, this architectural marvel is not yet well known, even although the 1000 year old ruins are a testament to ancient engineering achievements.
