Near Kailua-Kona in Hawaii County, Hawaii — Hawaiian Island Archipelago (Pacific Ocean)
Prehistorically, the Kahalu'u area supported a large population, including high ranking chiefs. Many of the once numerous heiau and other archaeological sites left behind by the ancient Hawaiians are being lost to the rapid growth and development that Hawaii has seen during this century. Kuemanu Heiau, said to have been used to pray for good surfing conditions, has been preserved by the County of Hawaii. Kuemanu was recently repaired and portions of the walls you see have been reconstructed.
Erected 1982 by Department of Parks and Recreation, County of Hawaii.
