Multi-purpose Room, downstairs

Please access to the temple campus is from driveway off Lusitana Street, not the Pali Highway.
- There is plenty of free parking all around the buildings on the campus. Map on our dedicated webpage.
Take the first right on the Pali Highway after the merge with the H1 turn-off. Take a right on Lusitania and the driveway into the temple campus is to your right. There is a second entrance on the makai side, right after the bus stop, if you missed it.
We are grateful for the temple to invite us and host our meetings for 2018. Many thanks to St. Francis for hosting for many years but their campus renovations means the meeting rooms are no longer available.
