Mānoa Heritage Center


Hidden on a private estate, the centerpiece of this unique site is the ancient, stone-walled Kūka‘ō‘ō heiau (temple). It's surrounded by beautiful Hawaiian gardens, which include rare native and Polynesian-introduced plants. Walking tours are led by volunteers and staff eager to share island lore and Hawaiian traditions. Book tour reservations online or by phone in advance. No walk-ins are allowed.
