Aliʻiōlani Hale means  “House of Heavenly Kings.”  It was built by King Kamehameha V in 1874 (and Aliʻiōlani was one of the King’s given names.)

It was originally supposed to be the royal palace, but it was converted into a much-needed government building. The interior was gutted and remodeled to accommodate the court system in 1911. Today Aliʻiōlani Hale houses Hawaii’s State Supreme Court, a law Library and a museum on the Hawaiian judiciary.

The famous gold-leaf statue of Kamehameha the Great stands in front of the building and it’s across the street from ‘Iolani Palace.
