Temwen Island is a small island off the southeastern coast off the island of Pohnpei in the Federated States of Micronesia.

Nan Madol[edit]

It is best known as the location of the ruined city of Nan Madol, the capital of the Saudeleur Dyanasty until 1628, which consisted of a series of artificially constructed islets off Temwen's southern coast.

Along with the rest of Pohnpei, it forms a large inlet called Madolenihmw Bay.
