An Ancient School of Sacred Rites

If you're looking for Elvis and Blue Hawaii, you've come to the wrong place. Historically, local culture practiced a regime of religious ceremonies that were taught and practiced at this temple, and their main focus included the grisly rite of human sacrifice.

This ancient site includes four ancient fishponds, the ruins of the ancient city Mapulehu, and the impressive ruins of the temple itself, which is fashioned with a massive stone altar more than 20 feet tall. Follow a dirt road through a fragrant forest of mango trees to see this deeply mysterious and important sacred place for yourself.
