Our next stop after Wailua Falls was Kamokila Hawaiian village. This is a partially reconstructed/restored site of a village abandoned around the end of the nineteenth century and rediscovered by accident in recent years. Some portions of the site, such as the temple, remain undisturbed amid the vegetation. Other portions have been reconstructed, and serve as a walking museum.
