Apraksts
| Lv | Maras dikis ir loti skaista vieta ar skaistu ainavu. Diki ir daudz piles. Pie dika atrodas Ojara Vacieša muzejs, bernu spelu laukums, ka ari piemineklis kritušajiem no 1944. gada 19. septembra uzlidojuma. Nosaukumu Maras dikis un Marupite ieguvuši no Sv. Marijas dzirnavam, kas rakstos minetas jau 13. gs. Dzirnavas piederejušas Domkapitulam, kuram mitnes vieta bija Rigas Doms. Latvieši Domu sauca nevis pec vacu parauga par Sv. Marijas baznicu, bet gan par Maras baznicu. Ari dzirnavas tauta ieguva Maras vardu. Popularais Rutku Teva romans Tris vella kalpi ir pamata Aleksandra Leimana filmai par polu uzbrukumu Rigai 1622. gada un 15 ridzinieku varonigo preti stašanos un uzbruceju padzišanu pie Maras dzirnavam. Tieši te risinajušies spraigie romana attelotie notikumi. Marupiti, kas tek cauri Maras dikim, lidz 20. gs. sauca par Maras dzirnavu gravi. Nav zinams, vai agrak upitei bijis kads cits, vietejo iedzivotaju dots vards. Kad pec dzirnavu uzcelšanas izveidojas udenskratuve, ta kartes un planos ieguva apzimejumu Sv. Marijas dzirnavu ezers. Dzirnavu ezeru izveidoja, savienojot Medema purva ezerinus ar kanaliem un ierikojot služas, lai ta nodrošinatu dzirnavam nepieciešamo udens daudzumu. Marupite vairakkart mainijusi tecejumu. Buvejot Tornkalna dzelzcela stacijas mezglu, 19. gs. beigas Marupiti novirzija caur tagadejo Uzvaras parku, bet 20. gs. sakuma – caur Arkadijas parku, ierikojot maksligus udenskritumus un paplašinajumus. Marupite škerso Zemgales priekšpilsetu, ta ir praktiski vieniga upite Riga ar relativi dabisku gultni.

| En | Mara's pond is a very beautiful place. In Mara`s pond are many ducks. Surrounding landscape is very green. Beautiful place where you can go with your family.
