Hagar Qim Temples, Qrendi

Explore Hagar Qim Temples, a prehistoric temple composed of massive limestone blocks that overlooks the sea and nearby islet. 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.

  • The treasures of Malta are there. The temples are clearly exceptional and worth a visit. The audio guides are very good qualities (you must ask for them)

  • I love stones and temples with a thousand years of history and it's always interesting to discover new places. For this journey, I can't say it was the best "energy feeling" to me, but for some own education is good! And for more understanding is good watching their movies about history of this Rocks and Temple. Generally I love Malta and it's truly surprise me how great island! I wish comeback soon again!
  • We went there in October when it was just a little bit of sunshine on the island and at the same time, it was very windy at the temples! But it was a beautiful walk. We found a place between the two temples to have a pic nic. There are a few signs about the ruins but not at all enough if you are interested... Check a guide, take an audio guide or use Google! ;)
  • It's a great place to go visit if you are fan of ancient history. Its a must see if you come to Malta. The ruins are located in nice and quiet place. They are also quite beautiful. However, I would recommend going there during the day when it's not to hot because the museum does not have air conditioning just fans. The museum however gives a great background to how the ruins came about.
  • Incredible 5 600 year old temple complex. It is a shame that so much is roped off, but l can imagine why. There is still a lot to see though, if you like ancient ruins, as i do. I got there right on opening and had it to myself for 30 minutes.
  • Mnajdra and Hagar Qim are both part of the same temple complex.There is a stunning 3D film at the beginning and great displays.There are Mesolithic temples here that are stunning and yes you can go inside.I walked away thinking what a great experience it had been.Well worth visiting.unbelievably peaceful.So nice to escape the endless line of cars that inhabit this island.
