Hawaii / North America / Pic of the Week

“Pic of the Week”, April 14, 2017: King Kamehameha and Iolani Palace, Honolulu

Hawaii 3-2008 013

One of the few highlights of old Hawaii still remaining in Honolulu is Iolani Palace.  The palace was built in the 19th century as the royal residence of the rulers of Hawaii, beginning with King Kamehameha, ending with Queen Lili’uokalani (1893).  The building is known for its Hawaiian renaissance architecture and a quality statue of King Kamehameha which sits by the road in front of the Palace.  The site is now open to the public as a museum.

Of interest, it is the only royal palace in the United States.
