This is on the way to National Tropical Botanical Gardens, the Sheraton, Spouting Horn, so if you want to combine it with something I recommend that. This is a very quick pullover stop out of you car. 20 mins max. It has a historical marker that explains the stop. You cannot walk up to the monument. It was interesting for the Polynesian historical factor.

As the birth place of Prince Kuhio in a grass hut, it's a sad attempt to honor a good man and an important piece of island history. Small statue, aligned rocks, dead grass, and a picnic shelter. If you like history, go to the History Museum in Lahui and spend a half-day.

Since the park was outside our hotel bedroom we thought we go for a walk around. There is not much to it as it is a site preserved to honour Prince Kuhio, the last prince of the Hawaiian royal family. He served in the American congress to push for Hawaiian rights and independence.

Once a week the native Hawaiians have a private ceremony.

This is a place of solitude and honour.

it is not much to look at - some lava rock walls, a pond and a monument but it commemorates one of the last of the Hawaiian nobility and from time to time, native Hawaiians build huge fires and sing and chant in the park and then it takes on an other-worldly air. Full of life and harking back to a time in the past when the native people of the island ruled their own land.
