Our Picture-Perfect Pali

For those unaware, the Monastery recently acquired an official 65 year lease for the small section of state land, which surrounds this unique section of the Wailua. "Pali" means "cliff" in Hawaiian. This large dip in the land is a well-known part of what makes many of our daily visitors so awestruck by the Aadheenam's beauty. The naturally river flows into this basin, which happens to be a giant lava tube. To get an idea of its depth, take the distance from the surface of the water to the treetops and multiply it by two and a half. After that it splits into several tubes which go even further down. Here are a few photos of this unusual spot.
