Past remnants of civilization can be found on the island of Pohnpel which is Micronesia's most developed island located in Palikir, the country's capital. Pohnpei is home to the archaeological site of Nan Madol, which can be seen clearly on google maps and was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2016.
Although Nan Madol has been recognised as a historical significant, this site ruins continue to be an enigma to historians and researchers alike. The city, bordered by stone walls, is constructed on top of a lagoon of small islands linked by a network of canals, that is truly complex stone monuments of the Saudelaur Dynasty ruled by Pohnpei until 1628, and dates back as far as the first or second century AD and Researchers believe the monuments likely were constructed between 1180 and 1200 AD.
