Almost a century before the Temple was built, between this area and the ocean you would see no homes, streets, landscaping or trees. Only a plain with grazing cattle existed with not much human occupancy. This is all that existed when The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints purchased the La'ie Ranch of 6,000 acres in 1865. Today after tremendous transformation exists the Temple on the hill with Brigham Young University-Hawai'i and the Polynesian Cultural Center on its right (or left if you're standing at the bottom looking up) creating an institutional triangle. La'ie is not only a historical place but with lush green landscaping all around, is one of the most beautiful places on the island.

Hawaii Reserves, Inc. manages property affiliated with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, primarily located in La'ie. To visit their site go to
