Staircase, Iolani Palace, Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii

Koa wood staircase in ‘Iolani Palace, home of King David Kalākaua and his sister Queen Liliʻuokalani, the last reigning monarchs of the Kingdom of Hawaii.  (Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii) Kalākaua was the first Hawaiian ruler to travel extensively and he admired the royal palaces he saw in Europe. He commissioned a new palace in the late 1870’s. Following the overthrow of the monarchy in 1893 and annexation by the United States, the palace became a government building and later the state capitol. Years of remodeling and neglect led to deterioration of the former royal residence. The palace has been loving restored over many years by the Friends of the ‘Iolani Palace and is open to the public. It is worth a visit if you are in Honolulu.
