The buildings around this historical part of town are impressive as are the statues. A bit away from the tourist areas but well worth the bus ride. A lovely area in Honolulu.

I found that a couple of minutes at this location was enough to admire the statue and building, take a couple of pictures and then move on.

Part of the Hawaiian history since this was the last ruling King on the islands. Great spot for pictures. If stopping for the statue please go across the street to visit the Iolani Palace

Visited Hawaii after eons years that I have not been there. And of course, my one aim was to see a shooting scene of Hawaii 5-0 - no luck!! But saw the headquarters - King Kamehameha. Thrilled to the bone. Of course, you get to know the King by looking up the history. Make sure you go see him!!

We stopped by very briefly, not much to see other than the statue and the building behind it. Cool to see if you are in the area anyways, not sure it's worth the trip for it alone but it's right across the street from Iolani palace.
