Mnajdra, Qrendi

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. Add Mnajdra and other attractions to your Qrendi trip itinerary using our Qrendi trip itinerary maker app .

  • These temples and the adjoining but separate Hagar Qim complex are mind-blowingly impressive in a stunning coastal location. One of the highlights of a great week in Malta.  more »
  • Worth approaching and visit temples. Imagine that they made it 1000 years before the pyramids. Surprise, also the visitor centre with a film dynamics on the temples. Magnificent installation

  • Amazing! If you are into history, archaeology, anthropology, or just checking out old places this spot is amazing! They give a great intro with 4d film in the beginning before allowing yo7 to go explore on your own. The sites are not that big but there is a lot to see regardless. Ancient temples to more modern towers. There are signs to explain everything. The staff is super friendly and are willing to talk to you and answer questions. There are hiking/walking nature trails around there to see where ancient meets more modern influences. Absolutely fascinating! Beautiful views of the sea as well.
  • Amazing temple ruins that you can get up close to and even walk inside. If that wasn't reason enough to go the view from here is breathtaking, make sure to leave time to sit down and take it in
  • Beautiful and extremely interesting. Unfortunately you cannot go around to see the back of it, but you definitely want to explore the surrounding areas too.
  • An amazing experience for history lovers. Worth a visit.
  • Nice site, but the Temple is for avid archeology buffs
