Trip Planner:   USA  /  Hawaii  /  Oahu  /  Honolulu  /  Shangri La
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.

  • This once private home of Patty Duke has an absolutely amazing collection of Islamic Art. The home itself is also a work of art. A must see.  more »
  • Closed! I was desperate to visit this and it wasnt even open at all so was . greatly let down. Closed for renovations. At least they could just close off one room at a time  more »
  • Truly a gem. Magnificient Islamic art in a stunning place. Very interesting tour. Doris Duke was a facinating lady. I've been 3 times and will go back again.  more »
