  'Ahu'ena Heiau
by KiKitC

'Ahu'ena Heiau was ordered restored by King Kamehameha in 1812 and dedicated to the god Lono. It is here where King Kamehameha spent his final years until he died in 1819. This historical site is right at the north end of Ali'i Drive, by the King Kamehameha Hotel, and just next to the pier where the Ironman Triathalon.

We had an opportunity to visit this (you can't go in it) while waiting for the Atlantis Submarine tour, which starts at the Ironman pier. Please note...offerings are still left for the gods at heiaus and other sacred spots. Do not touch.
