Most People Have Never Heard Of This Impressive Archaeological Site Hiding In Hawaii

The Hawaiian Islands are steeped in history and ss such, the Aloha State is home to rich historical sites and cultural monuments that were instrumental in the islands’ history. Ancient Hawaiian temples, or heiaus, were built for many reasons, including the treatment of the sick, offering of the first fruits, to start and stop the rain, to increase the population, achieve success in distant voyaging, ensure a nation’s health, or reach peace, for example. You’ll find the remnants of these temples across the Hawaiian Islands, and while all are sacred, there is one heiau, in particular, most people have never heard of.
