Worth a stop if you are interested in Hawaiian history. The grounds are well kept and there are numerous other places to visit in the same general area.

Reverent, peaceful last resting place of most of the Hawaiian monarch and their descendants. The ONLY piece of land that remains in Hawaiian kingdom/crown lands. It is sovergin Hawaiian Land. Visit the final resting places of the Kamehameha and Kalakaua lines.
