Heiau on Oahu

Information about ancient Hawaiian heiau on the island of Oahu. Heiau are also known as places of worship, temples, and religious or Hawaiian spiritual sites.

Hale O Lono Heiau
This heiau is located on the north shore of Oahu and it is dedicated to Lono, the god of agriculture, harvests, weather, sports, and medicine The Bishop Museum determined this site was a possible religious site during a 1974 survey The site was excavated, identified, and restored during an effort begun by Waimea Valley archaeologist Rudy Mitchell in 1985 and the first phase of restoration was completed in 1988. A sign at the site asks visitors to respect the heiau by not entering the area surrounding the site, but only viewing it. It is estimated that the Hale O Lono Heiau was built between 1470 AD and 1700 AD
