A Heiau is a temple and a place of worship. Ancient Hawaiians constructed many types of Heiaus. Some consisted of a house surrounded by a wooden fence. Others had multiple houses, and some were huge open-air temples. These larger temples often included terraces, stone platforms and carved idols.
Puukohola Heiau National Historic Site on the Big Island of Hawaii is one of the few remaining Heiaus in the islands.
