Mnajdra, Qrendi

(4.6/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Visit , ancient religious sites built around the fourth millenium BCE. Watch an introductory 3-D film filled with special effects, take in the view of the Mediterranean Sea, and explore the preserved ruins with the help of an audio tour. Be sure to visit the south temple, aligned to mark the position of sunrise on the first day of each season. The walk down to the temples is steep and may be difficult for people with mobility issues. Bring a hat and water with you, as the site gets very hot through the day.

  • The two temples are so close each other. You should see both. It is an amazing construction and the view is stunning.  more »
  • It's not clear what temples focus on to Malta. Mnajdra is really interesting, and with the audio guide, the visit is very captivating. The Museum is also a plus before the visit. The more 6000 years time where we realize the ability of those who built them.

  • Mnajdra temple is located in the vicinity of Hagar Qim. I have heard a lot about the latter, but comparatively little about Mnajdra. It was a pleasant surprise. It seems to be better preserved/reconst...  more »

  • Very good 3D film in wonderfully cool air conditioned theatre . Interesting , informative display area before going out side to visit the covered temple sites of Hagar Qimm and Mnajdra. There is a bit of a walk 10 mins ( approx) but scenery is interesting and electric carts that carry 4-5 passengers can be rented if you have mobility issues. The long stone paved walkway in between the temples sets the scene of ancient worshippers making the the same journey some 5,000 years ago. The sites are extraordinary with small information plaques placed in important areas. I recommend getting the audio guide. You can only enter partway into the temples due to conservation concerns which is shame as it would be wonderful to explore all over the site. However, I totally understand the importance of conserving these magnificent sites for further generations. I highly recommend visiting these temples.
  • Brilliant Neolithic temples on 2 sites, well preserved and able to walk in between some of the stones. Hands on with the past.
  • Cool prehistoric buildings. Bigger than the Hagar Qim one. Would recommend a visit on a stay at Malta.
  • Remarkable piece of ancient human architecture and engineering and astrology.
  • Definitely worth a visit if you are in Malta!
