A Manatū Taonga audio guide to Tūrangawaewae Marae at Ngāruawāhia. Check out the Ministry for Culture and Heritage's audio guide in the image carousel above.

Tūrangawaewae marae at Ngāruawāhia is the seat of the Māori King movement, which developed in the 1850s to unify Māori and protect their land. Tūrangawaewae -- literally 'a place to stand' -- was built in the 1920s under the direction of Te Puea Hērangi, granddaughter of the second Māori king.
