Designed by American artist T.R. Gould, the King Kamehameha Statue sits in front of Aliiolani Hale in the heart of historical Honolulu. This statue is the more popular of four, two of which are located on the big Island of Hawaii and another in Statuary Hall in Washington D.C. The Honolulu statue was dedicated in 1893 as a part of King David Kalakaua's coronation ceremonies that took place just across the street on the grounds of Iolani Palace. The statue pays homage to King Kamehameha the Great, who unified the Hawaiian Islands under the Kamehameha dynasty that continued uninterrupted until overthrown in 1893. - Lottie Tagupa
