Great for photos. This area has a lot of historical buildings and massive banyan trees. This statue and it's associated history of the King is worth finding about as a part of Hawaii's history and political background.

Iconic is the word for it. Would love to see it when it is covered with flowers, bet that would be something.

This was also a must stop on the Red Line Trolley. This statue is very large and impressive and is opposite the Iolani Palace.

What is there to say about a statue? It's kept up well and the plates around the bottom of the statue are interested to look at.

Very impressive statue in a nice setting in front of the palace. We had a group photo taken there and it looked good. It is obviously well looked after
