PIILANIHALE HEIAU
Hana (East Maui)

Largest Sacrificial Heiau in Hawaii

Attempting to cleanse the land of past evils, church members approached the heiau and saw a warrior standing on the wall confronting them. Suddenly, the warrior turned and fled, and chariots appeared in the sky. The property owners have been most reluctant to allow the public anywhere near the heiau, believing that "if you call them, they will eat you".

Scene of Ancient Murder

Legend says that the beautiful Princess Popoalaea escaped from her cruel and jealous husband and hid in this cave. When the chief found her, she was savagely murdered. In the spring, when the tragedy took place, red shrimp give the cave a red hue. Is it a sign of forgiveness, or the casting out of an evil spirit?
