It was very interesting coming across this piece of history right in town and knowing what had transpired in this place before.

Classic stature of a great king and icon to fans of the Hawaii 5o TV show. It just says Hawaii to the rest of the USA .You just have to go here.

What can I say - the starting credits of Hawaii 5-0. Seriously though, the King was a nice guy and important to Hawaiian history, so it is good to see his statue there.

This statue and the palace across the street remind us of Hawaii's royal past. Kamehameha is gone but this will always be his kingdom.

We took the bus to downtown and saw the statue. Its a good statue to look at. Apparently we were there during the weekend so there were no people around at all.

Who doesn't know this from the show we watched in the lower 48 & dreamed of Hawai'i?! They're doing a marvelous job of keeping it in good condition.

The statue was very kind. He stood still so we could take some pics. He's not ANTM cause he only has one face. Pay 25 cents to park 15 minutes; that will do. Nice to visit if you are an Hawaii 5-0 fan
