Admire the Middle Eastern and Indian architecture of Shangri La, formerly the private home of heiress Doris Duke. Today, the site is known as a center for Islamic arts and culture, and you can see metalwork, mosaics, vases, and textiles in brilliant colors. Inside the house, you'll also see rare artifacts in various temporary exhibits. Stroll the gardens to see a collection of tropical plants, as well as a pool and water terraces that flow into each other on a cliff overlooking the coast. Tours begin and end at the Honolulu Museum of Art and must be reserved in advance. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Shangri La and many more Honolulu attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Honolulu trip website.

  • My favorite thing on my trip to Hawaii. Islamic art displayed in an American house that is a beautiful blending of the style with the function we expect in a home. The guides were exceptional!!! The location was a dream setting. I'll return...
  • Great place to visit. The Islamic Museum is well maintained and the staff is very knowledgeable about their work. I would recommend the tour.
