This mausoleum was built in 1865 by Queen Emma and King Kamehameha IV, the final resting-place of their young son who died tragically at the age of four. Spread over three acres beside a tiny chapel, the mausoleum was later thought a more fitting burial ground for the deceased royalty of Hawaii, and several bodies were shifted from their previous graves to Mauna'ala. Locals consider this one of the most sacred grounds on the island, so be sure to conduct yourself appropriately when visiting.
