  • According to traditional genealogical chants of the Moʻokini family, this heiau was built around 480 AD The chant also speaks of 15000 to 18000 men building the stone structure in one night by passing rocks, hand to hand, fourteen milesf rom Pololū Valley. If a stone was dropped, it was left where it lay; therefore, a trail of scattered rocks can be seen between Pololū and Moʻokini. In the past, human sacrifices were readied for offering at Pōhaku Holehole Kanaka (stone for stripping human flesh),a large dishlike stone in front of the heiau. It is said that it was here that the flesh was removed from sacrificial victims

It is said that it was here that the flesh was removed from sacrificial victims Leimomi Moʻokini Lum is the current kahuna who carries the priestly responsibilities for the temple.. The heiau has had an unbroken line of kahuna. She is the 7th woman in the family to have served in this capacity, which is usually reserved for men. She lifted the kapu on the heiau in 1978 to make it safe for the people to come in and go out without harm Located on a 3 acre parcel of land, Moʻokini Heiau was the first site in Hawaiʻi to be designated a National Historic Landmark
  • An oasis within an oasis, the Kalahuipua'a Fishponds are the spiritual center of Mauna Lani. Predating even the earliest Western contact, the ponds are a tangible reminder of the days when the land and sea supported the Ali'i (royalty) who were the original inhabitants of the land. 

The seven ponds--Kalahuipua'a, Kahinawao, Waipuhi, Waipuhi Iki, Hope'ala, Milokukahi and Manoku--were used by ancient Hawaiians to raise fish and supplement their ocean fishing efforts. Bottom samples taken from the ponds date the ancient aquaculture system to as far back as 250 BC. Some of the fishponds were created by walling off the pools' natural access to the ocean. Makaha (sluice gates) were incorporated in the walls to allow for circulation of seawater, essential for maintaining healthy fish. The ponds were used to raise mullet, milkfish, shrimp and other sea life strictly for the consumption of Ali'i.Continuing the tradition of stewardship, Mauna Lani Resort cares for the ancient complex. The ponds are stocked, and the schools of mullet and awa are moved from pond to pond to feed in different stages of development. Mauna Lani  has also planted a variety of ancient Hawaiian plants in an effort to return the ponds to their natural state. Widely recognized as a pacesetter in historic preservation and stewardship of the land, Mauna Lani beckons visitors with its unparalleled spirit of place.
