Mnajdra Temples, holder of the UNESCO World Heritage Site status, is found in an isolated position on a rugged stretch of Malta's southern coast overlooking the isle of Fifla. It is approximately 500m away from Hagar Qim Temples. It consists of three buildings facing a common oval forecourt. The first and oldest structure dates to the Ggantija phase. The second structure to be built was the South Temple, constructed in the early Tarxien phase. The Central Temple, inserted between the other two, was the last to be built. Remains to the north-east and south of these buildings indicate that these three structures are only the best preserved of a larger complex.In order to reduce the irreversible damage caused by deterioration and structural problems that the temples were facing due to their continuous exposure to the elements, these temples are nowadays sheltered. Rain, sea salt spray and dust, fluctuations in temperature and relative humidity, solar radiation, sulphur oxide and nitrous oxide pollution, and volcanic emissions, as well as biological organisms, are some of those elements from which these precious Megalithic structures necessitated long-term protection. Today the temples are experiencing a dramatic reduction in the progressive deterioration of these world heritage monuments by natural agents as a result of the installed shelters.

The 1 Km round trip walk from Hagar Qim is seriously good value. The location is beautiful and the temple complex spellbinding. It displays tremendous design and crafting, and was of immense importance to people there and then. My second photo shows the astronomical clock.

I loved it! So cool to see these structures that were built SO LONG AGO! Really cool. There is a covering over it...which is not great-but come on guys (all of those who have negative reviews) it is to preserve it for future generations.

Very interesting insight to the archeology and ancient civilizations of Malta. This visit should be done with a guide who has insight and excellent explanations.

It may seem a good walk to these temples given on the surface they are much like Hagar Qim. but it is worth it. The layout is very different and you get get more up close and intimate with the stones.

These temples , about 5.000 years old , have been restored and protected such in a way to allow the visitors to understand their amazing imponence , the perspective achieved by the architects of that time , the mistery of how they have been able to erect the temples by moving and lifting slabs of stone 20 tons heavy .

Twinned with Hagar Qim, in many ways more interesting. Centred in a natural amphitheatre, facing the Isle of Filfla. I can only describe it as having a feeling of presence there.

Interesting to see this amazing pre-historic temple. Amazing that the temples are around 5000 years old. A 4D movie about the site is also included in the entrance fee. Don't miss to see Hagar Qim that are located a few hundred meter from Mnajdra Temples.

Just along a path from Hagar Qim Temple is the Mnajdra Temples. They overlook the sea and in many ways are the most awesome. One of the flat stones is huge and weighs 20 tons - however did they manoeuvre it 4000 years ago? A special site which has been well preserved and looked after. Use your Malta Heritage pass... More

I visited the Mnajdra temples during a holiday in Malta. I paid €11 which included access to the Mnajdra and Hagar Qim sites as well as a 4D film, the museum and an audio tour. This is excellent value for money and a must see whether you are a history buff or otherwise.
