Watch a 4-D film in the visitor center to learn about the 5,000 years of history associated with the temple. View a prehistoric chamber with an elliptical formation in alignment with the summer solstice sunrise so that, at dawn on the first day of summer, the rays of light pass through the hole and illuminate the chamber. Walk down one of the nature trails to the lookout tower for a view of the nearby island and nature reserve. The temple has convenient parking facilities and is easily accessible by bus.

  • S are in the same site of Mnajdra are two temples at a distance from each other. A particularly beautiful site to see. Public service and very slow for buses you have to wait about an hour ... preferable to a taxi.

  • Crowded buses, narrow roads but well worth it. This is an incredible sight. The whole complex is well laid out, explained and quite inspiring. Location itself is worth a visit. For archaeology fans no...  more »

  • One of the oldest freestanding structures in the world. Would definitely recommend stopping for a 30 minute to 1 hour stay. The museum is a little small and dated but the temples are amazing to just look at and think of the 5000 years they've been around. The view of the ocean is incredible from here, you can see the curvature of the earth.
  • Beautiful place. With a heck of a view. For the more adventurous people if you head down behind the temple and behind the second temple "Mnajdra" there is a beautiful view of the sea. For those who want to swim there is a 'hidden location' easily reached by descending down after the monument dedicated to a general. No rope required. Just some previous experience with steep places and good walking shoes.
  • One of the most ancient relics in the world. Nice, but don't expect a long visit
  • Quite worth the visit. Won't take you long but €10 well spent to see some older than Stonehenge temples
  • These are amongst the oldest free standing structures in Europe and are so compelling. You have to visit if you come to Malta!
