Sacred Places on Maui Tour

"People strive to set themselves apart from the rest of the world to recognize and be recognized by their God."

"Man has used his greatest efforts in creating his worship places."

"There is much that unites people through their religions and the ways they search for God."

- Dr. Val Brinkerfoff, Author of "Sacred Places"

Kaahumanu Church Maui

Queen Ka’ahumanu Christian Church

After attending a service in the ‘Hale’ style church that first graced these grounds in 1832, Kamehameha the Great’s favorite wife, Maui-born Ka’ahumanu, asked that a more permanent structure be built and named after her. It was done in 1876. See the grave of the ‘Blind Saint’, Pua’aiki, and the miracles of his new God, Jehovah.

Haleki’i and Pihana Heiau Mount

Haleki’i , the Image House and Pihana, also known as Pihanakalani, the Gathering of the Supernatural, are said to have been built in 1260 AD. Heiau are Temples that had many uses but were significant places of worship for ancient Hawaiians. At the death of King Kamehameha most were demolished as the old religion was dismantled.
