Located on the grounds of Iolani Palace near the intersection of Richards and South King Street, The Keli'iponi (as it's historically known), was the centerpiece of the Hawaiian Monarchy. It was completed in 1883 especially for the coronation of King David Kalakaua and has been the site of several ceremonies, including the inauguration of the Governors of the State of Hawaii. Originally located between the Palace and the King Street entrance, the domed roof is adorned with the seal of the Hawaiian Kingdom. It was moved closer to the southwest corner and rebuilt in 1910 to make room for vehicle access to the Palace grounds.
