One of Peleliu's most spectacular WWII sites, this large concrete structure suffered severe damage from aerial bombing – look for the massive hole in the facade – and is now partly overgrown with trees and shrubs. The Japanese built it to supply electricity during the time of their occupation. The adjacent building with a heavy metal door was used to store fuel.
