Heiau on Maui

A guide to ancient Hawaiian heiau - aka temples or places of worship - on the island of Maui in Hawaii.

Halekii-Pihana Heiau State Monument
This 10.2 acre Hawaii State Monument features the remains of two important heiau that were rededicated as war temples by the last ruler of Maui, Chief Kahekili: the Halekii Heiau and the Pihana Heiau. Located in the town of Wailuku, at the end of Hea Place, off Kuhio Place, off Waiehu Beach Road (Highway 340).

Hokukano-Ualapue Complex National Historic Landmark
Includes six temples (heiau) and two fishponds. Designated a National Historic Landmark on December 29, 1962.

Loaloa Heiau National Historic Landmark
The Loaloa Heiau at Kaupo was designated a United States National Historic Landmark or Site on December 29, 1962. This is one of the few remaining intact examples of a large luakini heiau (state level temple where human sacrifice was performed). Once the center of an important cultural complex around Kaupo, oral tradition attributes the construction of the temple at about 1730 AD to Kekaulike, King of Maui, who lived at Kaupo and died in 1736.

Piilanihale Heiau National Historic Landmark
The Piilanihale Heiau was designated a United States National Historic Landmark on January 29, 1964. It is located on the grounds of Kahanu Garden, a U.S. National Tropical Botanical Garden.
