Overview of Alofi National Memorial

The national memorial in Alofi incorporates the tablet from the original memorial, opened in 1926. It listed the names of those who died during the First World War. The 1926 memorial crumbled over time and was replaced in 1964 (first image above) by a new memorial incorporating the original tablet. This memorial also deteriorated and the tablet is now on the left side of the national memorial. On the right side is a new tablet listing the names of all the men from Niue who went to the First World War.

It was erected above the wharf in the village of Alofi. The concrete memorial has been replaced at least twice due to the harsh climatic conditions, but the marble tablet has been reused each time. - Courtesy of www.nzhistory.net.nz Governor-General Sir Bernard Fergusson at opening of the second memorial on Alofi green, rebuilt by the RSA after the first had crumbled in the harsh climatic conditions of the island - Courtesy of www.nzhistory.net.nz List of names from original monument - Courtesy of www.nzhistory.net.nz View of all memorials with captured German weapon - Courtesy of www.nzhistory.net.nz

Kian R. wrote about Jumhooree Maidhaan:

"Jumhoree Maidhaan, also known as Republic Square is located between the fish market and the main jetties. During the day you can see lots of locals and expats around, especially from India and Bangladesh. It has a few sitting options underneath a couple of trees, making it a perfect rest and relax area after some shopping, and an opportunity to watch people. Tip: avoid the area if you should hear of any demonstrations in Male. It didn't happen recently, but often in 2011/2012.
