While Hawaii may not have many castles, the island chain once operated as a monarchy. As a result, there are several locations that were once important to Hawaiian royalty, including several private residences and places of cultural significance. Many of these residences have been torn down, converted to museums, or restored.

If only we could experience these royal places in their prime. I feel as though effect these places once had is largely lost after decades of restoration, or destruction.
