It is a Neolithic structure which is known to be older than the English Stonehenge and the Egyptian Pyramid of Giza. Ireland has two more similar mound structures which belong to the same age, namely Knowth and Dowth. All of them have been tagged as UNESCO Heritage Sites.

We visit a number of landforms and man-made structures which are famous for being the “longest” or the “largest” in their domain.  But now, here is a landform which is though not a stand out from the perspective of its volume but is unique in terms of its name which, as per the Guinness Book of World Records, is the longest name of any place.

Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu is the Maori name for a 305 metres hill which stands in Porangahau, the southern part of Hawke’s Bay in New Zealand.
