Description:

The "House of Lono" was constructed around 14 centuries ago  in the honor of God Lono. The God Lono was one of the four major Gods that ancient Hawaiian used to worship. He was the God of sports, agriculture, harvest and weather. Hale o Lono Heiau is actually the largest and oldest historical site excavated in Hawaii so far. It is located in the beautiful  Waimea Valley on the spectacular Oahu's North Shore.

Originally, no humans were sacrificed on 
heiau as it was not designed or meant for this purpose. However, with the passage of time especially at the beginning of Makahiki, both animals and human sacrifices had become very common the basic purpose of which was to ensure good fishing and harvest.

Any person visiting to these sites should treat them with veneer and utmost respect as they are still very sacred to indigenous Hawaiian people. You are especially advised not to remove or displace anything. Furthermore, never ever climb the walls and walk over them.
