Kaniakapupu ("the singing of the land shells") is the now dilapidated summer palace of king Kamehameha III and his queen Kalama on Oahu in Hawaii.


The palace was completed in 1845 and was a place for entertaining foreign celebrities, chiefs, and commoners.

On Hawaiian Restoration Day in 1847, a luau attended by an estimated ten thousand people gathered at the palace.
