Honohina Hongwanji Temple

-A A +A
1927. 32-896 Mamalahoa Hwy., Ninole

This small temple was constructed as a branch of the Honohina temple. However, with the passage of time and population shifts, it became the main temple in 1969 when the mother temple was dismantled. A shallow irimoya-roofed portico reveals the structure as more than a large plantation house.
