A Look at One of My Settings


My fictional world is based on Hawaii, because of the unique culture it has.  One of the recurring settings are open air temples.  Though there are photos available of one of the surviving ones on O’ahu, they haven’t helped me in the context of what I need for the story.  Would really like to go there in person again to look at the temple, but that’s not happening at the moment.  So I went back and tried changing my search criteria and popped up with this brochure from the park service.  The tower, in particular was a new discovery.

Temples figure prominently in my story.  There are at least two and possibly three.  These are some photos of the real temple Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau, so having an illustration of the layout, plus a description was a big help.
