This site was a must-see on our recent visit to Malta. We hired a cab for half a day in Valleta which enabled us to see this complex, the Blue Grotto, and Mdina with time to spare - a small investment for all that we saw. Mnajdra is the smaller of two temples at the site - the larger being Hagar Qim - and is only a half hour's drive from Valleta. It is protected from the weather by a large tent, and you can wander through it as you please with no crowds or guards to deal with. The temples pre-date Stonehenge but reminds you of that more famous place, and the stones are a good ten feet or more in height. Each temple has a number of rooms, altars, and carvings. Hagar Qim temple is about three hundred yards away along a paved walkway and further from the sea. Both are located on a rolling hillside dotted with flowers overlooking the sea, very picturesque, and only five minutes' drive from the Blue Grotto. Highly recommended!
