Doris Domain
The former sanctuary of ’the richest woman in the world’ is a mesmerising journey into Islamic art and culture.

Shangri La is the former sanctuary of Doris Duke (1912 – 1993), the daughter of wealthy tobacco and electric energy tycoon James Buchanan Duke. Situated in an affluent neighbourhood near Diamond Head just outside of Honolulu, the Islamic-style mansion was built in 1937 as a home of Islamic art and architecture. Today it is owned by The Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art in cooperation with the Honolulu Museum of Art and it is open to the public for guided tours.
