Naha Stones

Naha Stones Legends and Legendary People Social Studies Visual Arts World History

King Kamehameha I was strong.  It is said he was able to move the massive Naha Stones - once part of an ancient temple - to prove his incredible strength.  In the Hawaiian language, the stones are known as "Pohaku Naha."

The temple, where the stones were originally located, was destroyed in the 19th century.  As a result, they are now displayed in front of the Hilo Public Library (on the Big Island of Hawaii).
