The water of Ha'o...

In the middle of an otherwise dry and barren plane, existed a sacred spring on these grounds, reserved for use by high chiefs and chiefesses only. Legend tells us that among the high ranking who enjoyed the privilege of bathing in the large circular pool was the High Chiefess Ha'o. Thus the land area near the spring came to bear her name: Ka Wai a Ha'o - The Water of Ha'o.

An original rock which was found next to the spring has been incorporated into the existing fountain which commemorates the spring. It is identified by a bronze plaque which reads: Ka Pohaku O Ka Wai a Ha'o - The Stone of the Water of Ha'o.
