Trip Planner: South Pacific / Mariana Islands / Northern Mariana Islands / Tinian / San Jose / House of Taga
The House of Taga (Chamoru: Guma Taga) is an archeological site located near San Jose Village, on the island of Tinian, United States Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, in the Marianas Archipelago. The site is the location of a series of prehistoric latte stone pillars which were quarried about 4,000 feet (1,200 m) south of the site, only one of which is left standing erect due to past earthquakes. The name is derived from a mythological chief named Taga, who is said to have erected the pillars as a foundation for his own house.Plan a trip to Tinian easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

House of Taga reviews
Impressive feats of architecture on display here, no large mammals to move the stones Into place that weigh in the 5-10 tonnes range rumored to have been constructed by TAGA a former chief Chammoro with superhuman powers...someone had to get those giant stone situated for the base of the wood superstructure and all the locals had when the s was constructed was simple hand tools and physics...WOW maybe a superhuman or two did construct this chieftain house. Let your imagine wander and enjoy the peaceful quiet history around you in this place of zen of balance and even some mystery too!
Nice place to visit. It is part of Tinian.
