Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A heiau is a temple or place of worship, usually a raised rectangular platform built from lava rocks by the early Hawaiians. In the old days there would have been altars, huts, and tikis, (carved representations of the gods) on top.

A heiau might be dedicated to a god of war or have some specialized purpose: to propitiate the gods of agriculture or fishing, to teach sacred rituals like the hula, to glorify an ali’i (chief)."
