These two heiau, or temples, built in 1240 from stones carried up from the Iao Stream below, sit on a hill with a commanding view of central Maui and Haleakala. Kahekili, the last chief of Maui, lived here. After the bloody battle at Iao Stream, Kamehameha I reportedly came to the temple here to pay homage to the war god, Ku, with a human sacrifice. Halekii (“House of Images”) is made of stone walls with a flat grassy top, whereas Pihanakalani (“Gathering Place of Supernatural Beings”) is a pyramidshaped mount of stones. If you sit quietly nearby (never walk on any heiau—it’s considered disrespectful), you’ll see that the view alone explains why this spot was chosen. You’ll need to walk up the entrance road to the 10-acre park, which is closed to vehicles.
