If you're traveling across Oahu on the Pali Highway, you'll be a short hop from one of the most historically significant sites on the island. Consider taking Nuuanu Avenue in order to stop at the Royal Mausoleum, a serene yet solemn royal ground in the midst of the busy city of Honolulu. Here you will see the grave sites or tombs of most of the Hawaiian royals and John Young, great friend and helper to King Kamehameha the Great.
At the time of this writing, it is open 8-4, Monday thru Friday, and on Memorial Day, and entrance is free. It is easy to pass, but driving up from Honolulu it will be on the right, just watch for the gates. If you notice that you've passed it, turn left on Kawananakoa Place and turn around, but not before snapping a picture of the Chinese Buddhist Association of Hawaii temple building! See picture below.
