"Coronation Pavilion" Top 5 Page for this destination Palaces / Temples Tip by Nathalie_B

Palaces / Temples, Oahu: 34 reviews and 69 photos


A structure outside the Iolani Palace is not just a lovely terrace; it is actually the coronation pavilion for both Kalakaua and Liliuikalani.
Ironically, King Kalakaua had his official coronation 8 years after he was elected Hawaiian monarch.
It was placed by the palace in 1920, after removing it from its plrevious place where it was facing the King?s street. The King Street got its name at the time of Missionaries? arrival to the island. While mission houses and the church were built king Kamheamhea used to pass by in his carriage to show his presence to the newcomers.
There?s so much interesting history to this island. 3 weeks weren?t enough to learn it all.

Address: Iolani Palace
