Found near the trees which you saw here inside the Temple compound

@Existence Artistique: merci beaucoup Existence :)
Nice tool. I´ve done this with an ax or hammer. This here looks a bit more "civilized".

@Ralf Kesper: this is for removing the husk from a full coconut. The nut is then broken on a stone or as you say. with the hammer.
I would love to see this being done. It looks like it has been there a very long time. I hope that you are doing well Devi.

@Elaine Hancock: Thank you Elaine. Happy you can relate to this :)I am fine.thank you and will get back to my very own pad on the 28th :)))
We saw this being done in the islands of Tahiti, but they just hammered a strong stick into the ground and slammed the coconut onto it.

@B. Thomas: yes.. we can push a strong long iron rod into the ground and peel the husk :)
