Notice the facial features set within its design. It has a closed left eye a narrow nose and a thick rectangular mouth.
The Temple is located in Kohala, near the town of Hawi, on the Island of Hawaii. It is one of the oldest and most sacred places of worship in the Hawaiian Islands. It was first built on the northernmost tip of the Island of Hawai'i sometime in the 5th century by the high priest Mo'okini. A new structure was built on the older temple between the 13th and 14th centuries by Pa'ao, a legendary priest from either Tahiti or Samoa.
