Mnajdra, Qrendi
(4.6/5 based on 500+ 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.

  • definitely a must see for those who come to Malta. Together with the other temple, located less than 400 metres and you visit with the same ticket, is an archaeological site definitely of value. to see even with children.

  • We visited both temples, 600 meters away from each other. First we saw a 3D video inside the Museum that uses special effects (rain, wind). After the visit we fowarded to the sea, where the island of Filfla, which seems a ship rock. At that point, just above the Arch of the Blue Grotto, will have been to the grey weather, with rain clouds and the Black Sea and calm as a metallic floor, and even the absolute silence, broken by birds or other, um, it seemed a place outside the world, esoteric. Let us not forget that these temples saw the entry of light during the solstices, resuming the legends of other primitive peoples.

  • The Museum is two megalithic temples around 600 m equal to prepared for tourists. Visit precedes the 4 d movie watching and a few thumbnails of explaining what we're going to watch. All interesting and making a big impression (if you remember all the time that the building is 5000 years old). There is also a nice eatery where you can have a cup of coffee or something to eat.

  • 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!
