Petroglpyhs are lava rock carvings etched into stone dating back to 1200 AD. Although the true meaning of most of the petroglyphs are unknown, it is generally thought that they signified births or other significant events. You can find these along the Kohala Coast of the Big Island, but to see them you must hike amongst the lava rocks to see them. At Kona Village you can walk safely along a wooden walkway above the petroglyphs to enjoy them.
There is also a cultural center nearby, but as of July 2023 was not yet open.
