In addition to the impressive view from up here this area provides historical importance. Before the 1830's most of the Hawaiian inhabitants of La'ie lived in this valley behind the temple. The first census around that time counted 300 to 400 people living here. Between 1846 and 1855 several families received title to land in La'ie for their private use and after 1865 began the buildings of a chapel, school and mill. It wasn't until after 1883 when the first wells were drilled that people began moving into La'ie.
