Welcome to Pu'ukohola Heiau, one of the most famous heiau (temples) in the Hawaiian Islands. This heiau is an integral component of the traditional Hawaiian social, political, and religious systems, and a significant place in the history of King Kamehameha I, who brought the Hawaiian Islands together under one rule.

Pu'ukohola Heiau is a National Historic Site administered by the National Park Service and held in stewardship for the common benefit for Hawaiian people, for people of the United States, and for the world.Stories about Pu'ukolola are found in oral traditions and in written records, providing us with the resources to paint a picture of life and events at Pu'ukohola during the time of Kamehameha I. However, opinions vary greatly on interpretation of these historical events, and the viewpoint expressed here is just one of many.
