Brass Door Fittings, Iolani Palace

Doors of Iolani Palace

Iolani Palace was once the home of the Hawaiian Royal Family.

King Kalākaua was the first monarch to circumnavigate the globe. Inspired by what he had seen in the royal courts of Europe he set out to emulate the grandeur of the European Palaces.

King Kalākaua built Iolani Palace in 1882.  The palace was home to the king, his wife Queen Kapiʻolani, and younger sister Queen Liliʻuokalani.

I travel for both work and leisure. I enjoy outdoor activities, visiting UNESCO Listed sites, and cooking up a storm! It is going to take a life-time for me to visit all of the places on my travel list and I am looking forward to the journey ahead.
