Default Churches and Graveyards: Pu'uokohala Heiau

Located on the Big Island of Hawaii this ancient (1790-91) Heiau (Hawaiian place of worship) was ordered built by the future King of all of the Hawaiian Islands, King Kamehamehea I. He was the first Hawaiian monarch to unify the island chain via wars or treaties and help from foreign powers.
This ancient Heiau composed of rocks without mortar has been restored from its crumbling state due to earthquakes and vandalism etc.
