NOTES: The large volcanic island of Temwen (pronounced che(m.mwe(n) is linked to Pohnpei’s southeast coast by a short causeway and is most famous for the awe-inspiring ruins of Nan Madol (nän mä.to-l) — a prehistoric megalithic complex on par with Machu Picchu, Angkor Wat, and the moai of Easter Island. Temwen, which has been inhabited for close to 2,000 years, is also the ancestral home of Madolenihmw’s paramount chiefs, or nahnmwarki (nähn.mwär.kee), who lived at Nan Madol until the mid-1800s. The island is a place steeped in history and ceremony that also offers a spectacular range of exciting outdoor activities for eco-tourists.
