  • This and Mnajdra form an absolutely wonderful megalithic site in stunning location. overlooking the sea. The effort that prehistoric man made to construct these monuments is absolutely mind-boggling.  more »
  • While on Malta a visit to one of the Megalithic sites is a must. The Hagar Qim Temples were the most accessible for my daughter and I, so that's where we went. The site is well-served by the public bu...  more »
  • Hagar Qim. The stone temples, which is definitely worth it in the plans of the places to visit in Malta. Mystery, power, colour ... and peace of mind. Cultures that have created the Hagar Qim and Mnajdra has long gone. Are gone. AWE raise their captured in stone. And that's how! Visitors to this place, because of that zataję I encourage you to watch a short 3D movie displayed in the administration building. The cost of the entrance ticket to the-10 euro.

  • Amazing structures. If you love ancient history, you got to see this. How on earth did they build these temples. With no technology at all. Only tools of stones or woods. Scientist go easily around the fact that it is impossible to cut stone with tools of the same hardness and material as the stone itself. You need material that is harder to cut softer materials the way like they did. But the same scientist also state that there wasn't any harder material at the time, because the structures were build in the neolithic time area around 3600 BC. Even today with all the technology at our disposal we find difficulties to build structures on spots like these. Archipelago Maltais, it was build by our ancestors with the help of extraterrestrials!
  • Ruins of an ancient temple. The small museum and documentary forehand gives Info about the construction of the temples, their fall into oblivion and the restoration efforts over the last centuries. There is a small hike (~1 km) down to the temple sites. Small shuttle rides are offered for the journey to those who need it. The view out to the sea is also great.
  • By a suggestive series of stiff cliffs here stand some ancient temples constructed with huge stone blocks. It's definitely a place worth a visit. Be sure you visit the surroundings as well. There is an old watchtower and in the distance you can spot a small island which Bitish were using to fire at in naval exercises and hosts some unique species such as two tailed lizards.
  • One ticket to enter two sites ( also Mnajdra) and there is a very small museum as well. Fascinating place as some of the stones to build the temples are massive. They also show you how the ancient temple builders moved the stones and there are evidence scattered around the sites of the round boulders used to move these large slabs. Very beautiful.
  • Entry cost $5eu starts with a 10 minute 4d movie that is stupid but informative and the walk to the 2 ancient sites which are spooky cool like seeing the pyramids. If bad knees, ask for the $1 electric cab ride which will take you all the way there and back. Signs are in English, radio earbuds available in many other languages for small additional cost. Free publ8c bathrooms.
