Over 14,000 coral blocks in total were used for the building of this church. Builders literally had to dive to get materials for building. For a long time this luxury building was open for privileged persons only.
honolulu downtown Iolani Palace is an equally impressive architectural monument. Once this palace was the property of the first Hawaiian monarch - David Kalakaua. After seeing the grandeur of the palaces that were built in the end of the 19th century in Europe, the monarch made an order to build a no less grandiose building in his home country. The construction lasted three years and was so large-scale that it almost drained the royal treasury. The monument of Kamehameha I is another symbolic attraction of Honolulu. You will find this monument on the square in front of the Supreme Court. A great ruler, warrior and diplomat, Kamehameha I became famous for his exploits, which are still not forgotten by local residents.
