Ruin Tourist Spot
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.

  • 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.
  • This temple complex is so well preserved and is incredible to walk through. The information and signage is limited. At the visitors center there is a lot of information. I highly recommend visiting on your trip to Malta.
  • Interesting, and not covered by scaffolding! Remarkable piece of history. Best Maltese temple I saw so far.
  • A bit expensive. We just went around for the view. Amazing scenery! Picnic area available
  • Beautiful historical monument. You can almost feel the energy surrounding the place. Also fantastic that you can walk within the Temple walls. Must see
