The only fully restored temple in Tahiti is now used to re-enact ancient Polynesian ceremonies. The stone pens near the entrance that once held animal sacrifices have been permanently put out to pasture though.
Papeete Tahiti Temple
The modern single-spire cathedral is considered new since it was completed in 1983 - this seems recent until one considers it was the same year the long-running cassette tape topped vinyl sales, and the movie "Flashdance" was released.
Papeete Catholic Cathedral
It may have been modeled after the grand Notre Dame Cathedral in France, but building Tahiti's humble cathedral was halted twice due to lack of funds. It was finally scaled down for completion in 1875.
While the famous park is justifiably renowned for lush gardens, visitors also covet the jewelry sold at the museum store - all featuring the world-class black pearls farmed in the nearby atolls.
The park is named for Louis Antoine de Bougainville, a French explorer who believed he had discovered Tahiti. He remained blissfully unaware that it had previously been discovered by Samuel Wallis.
Tomb of King Pomare V
The tomb of the last king of Tahiti was originally built for his mother, Queen Pomare IV. Pomare V only outlived her by a few years.
James Norman Hall Home
James Norman Hall, best known for co-authoring the novel Mutiny on the Bounty, served with 3 Western allies in WWI: Great Britain, France and the United States. He did not, however, participate in any mutinies.
It takes an experienced hiker with nerves of steel to reach the top of this waterfall. It's reputed to be nearly 500 feet tall - or 50 stories in the air.

In 1769, James Cook and his fellow astronomers planned a quick jaunt from England to observe the century's second transit of Venus. They may have miscalculated observation time. The team did not return to England until 1771.
The beauty of Faarumai Waterfalls has a price. Copious amounts of insect repellent are highly recommended.
Paul Gauguin Museum
Although Gauguin lived a large part of his life in Tahiti, his paintings were returned to Europe. The museum in Tahiti features only reproductions of the great master's work.
Water Gardens of Vaipahi
George Harrison (of Beatles fame) and Pattie Boyd were rumored to have spent some glorious nights here back in 1964. No word if they were accompanied by any "hard days"
