What people are saying:

The Kawaiahao Church is the iconic building smack dab in the middle of downtown Honolulu. It's not uncommon to see very elaborate weddings take place here. This is an interesting juxtaposition to the old graveyard to the side. Supposedly, many of the downtown buildings nearby are haunted, a fact that some of my family members can attest to. Circle of life, indeed.

    Very cool looking exterior

    We didn't actually go inside this church, we just took some pictures of the exterior because it was so cool looking. It's been around since at least World War II.

    Lovely church

    Lovely church at least on the outside. There was something going on when we were there, so we didn't go inside. Never want to intrude. It is a good place to stroll around, relax and read the plaques,...
