Free attraction, downtown Honolulu. State of King Kamehameha is a landmark. It's across the street from the palace, easy to take in both. In background of the statue is a state office building - it is the one used as back drop for the TV series Hawaii 50.

Just a plain statue, but very impressive. Only Royalty in the USA. Similar to the statue in Hawi on the Big Island.

The statue of King Kamehameha 1 that is found in front of the Justice Building in Honolulu is one of a number of statues dedicated to the Hawaiian king who conquered most of the Hawaiian Islands, formally establishing the Kingdom of Hawaiʻi in 1810. BTW, this is also the iconic statue that is seen on the Hawaii-5-0 series!

Grand Iconic Statue. Very impressive in the flesh. Surpasses the photographs in marketing materials associated with Hawaii.
