Pu'ukohola Heiau National Historic Site is located in Kawaihae, on the Island of Hawaii.  The climate is normally very warm, about 89 degrees Fahrenheit with high humidity and occasional episodes of high wind up to 50-60 miles per hour.  There is no public transportation available.  The nearest town is Waimea, located approximately 10 miles to the east.
There are three temples at this site: Pu'ukohola Heiau, Mailekini Heiau, and Hale o Kapuni Heiau. Pu'ukohola Heiau rises majestically above the turquoise waters of the Pacific, a silent testament to the most renowned king of Hawaii, Kamehameha. Mailekini Heiau, the temple-turned-fort that once thundered with the sound of cannons, continues to stand guard. The sharks return most days to Hale o Kapuni Heiau, the submerged ruins of a temple that was once dedicated to them. This is where the history makers of Hawaii lived, and where their history comes to life.
