From the moment you arrive at Pu'ukohola Heiau National Historic Site, you quickly realize the significance of this unique place. The great temple of Kamehameha the Great, Pu'ukohola Heiau, rises majestically above the turquoise waters of the Pacific, a silent testament to the most renowned king of Hawai'i. Mailekini Heiau, the temple-turned-fort that once thundered with the sound of cannons, continues to stand guard. The sharks return most days to Hale o Kapuni Heiau, the sumberged ruins of a temple that was once dedicated to them. This is where the history-makers of Hawai'i lived and where their history comes to life. Come to Pu'ukohola Heiau National Historic Site and step into history.
