This is a very prominent statue of the last ruler of the Islands, It sits opposite the Iolani Palace and is well worth a walk across the street for photographs

It was great to see it up close after 40 years. Just like on Hawaii 5-o! I took several pictures with my friend and I . So many tourists came to flock!

easy to get to by public bus and opposite Iolani Palace and near other attractions. Well maintained statue, building and grounds. Tour buses stop here frequently so hopefully you visit when the crowds aren't here. Tour operators have provided info that he wasn't the hero he appears to be.

King Kamehameha Statue is situated behind the Ilonia Palace and in front of the state capital building. Many trolley companies make this a stop on their routes.

Visited the palace across the road and whilst in the area, took some nice photos of us standing in front of it. Beautiful looking building behind him and a number of tours had stopped to take some snaps.
