Ali`iolani Hale, or the King Kamehameha V - Judiciary History Center, is most popular for being the residing location of a towering gold-plated statue of Hawaii's famous King Kamehameha. The unique work of art has a sharp contrast between the king himself and his golden traditional Hawaiian chief ensemble. It is easily one of the most photographed attractions in Honolulu, and is a staple of most every city tour. Depending on the time of the year, the statue might be adorned with hundreds of leis from individuals wishing to pay their respect to this great Hawaiian figure. The building in front of which this statue was erected is a good location to brush up on your Hawaiian history if you have no idea why the interestingly named Kamehameha is deserving of such praise. The facility is beautifully maintained, and the architectural layout, which is derived from the works of Renaissance masters, adds even more attraction.
