A visit to this site is a visit to one of the most historical and revered heiau in all of Polynesia. Located on a hill between Spencer Beach Park and Kawaihae Harbor, this heiau is dedicated to the Hawaiian War God Ku. It is the location where King Kamehameha launched the unification of the Hawaiian Islands after the death of Keoua. The area is sunny and warm, and the experience includes a short video, a gift shop and several attendants that will answer any questions and provide local insight to the temple, the area and more.
