Located in the backyard of one of Oahu’s most prominent homes, Kukaoo Heiau in urban Honolulu’s Manoa Valley is an ancient agricultural temple believed built hundreds of years ago by the valley’s earliest Hawaiian residents.
Restored in 1933, the heiau neighbors a Tudor revival style residence built in 1911 and also considered a historic site.
The nonprofit Mānoa Heritage Center (808-988-1287, www.manoaheritagecenter.org), which is housed on the property, offers one-hour guided tours of the historic home and this heiau.
