Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park


Also, called the Place of Refuge, this was a site in which violators of kapu could come to seek asylum from otherwise certain death. The Park includes a remarkable stone wall, called the Great Wall built in 1500. It is 1,000 feet long, 10 feet high, and 17 feet thick. Also, on the grounds are reconstructed Hawaiian houses and temples, as well as wood carvings of gods.
