Kaniakapupu: The Summer Home Of King Kamehameha III - November 3, 2013


Kaniakapupu means "the singing of the land shells." This house was the summer palace of King Kamehameha III and Queen Kalama in Nu'uanu.


The palace was built in 1845 and was a place for entertaining celebrities, chiefs and commoners.


On Hawaiian Restoration Day (1847) , about ten thousand people attended a luau here. 


If you do visit this sacred place, please Malama. Do not jump or climb on rocks, take anything from with you, do not go inside the palace. Take care of our history.
