This Octagonal Church Might Just Be The Most Unique Structure In All Of Hawaii

Religion has played an important role in the history of the Hawaiian Islands. When Christian missionaries arrived in the islands, they brought with them their belief system and the church. From small rural chapels to huge cathedrals located in the heart of Hawaii’s capital, you’ll find countless beautiful churches across the Hawaiian Islands, but there is no church quite like the one we’re sharing with you today.
