Tamatekapua (Ōhinemutu, N.Z.)

Meeting house at Te Papaiouru marae, within the papakainga of Ōhinemutu, on the lakefront of Rotorua City. Six hapū of Ngāti Whakaue are associated with the marae, and are collectively known as Te Koromatua o Ngāti Whakaue.

The house was built in 1878 to ratify the peace between the Te Arawa and Waikato tribes. It was demolished in 1939, but was rebuilt and opened again in 1943. Alternative spelling is Tama te Kapua. Also known as Centennial Meeting House, as restoration was intended as a memorial for the New Zealand Centennial in 1940.
