- The site protects two important heiau (religious sites) used as war temples by Maui's last ruling chief, Kahekili. It is thought that on occasion these may have been the sites of human sacrifices. The walk around the hieau is about one-half mile and takes about 15 minutes.
Aside from the chance to view this site steeped in Hawai'ian history, this park provides an excellent view of central Maui and the Wailuku Plain.
