OPENING HOURS: During Summer (1st April till 30th September) open Monday to Sunday from 08.00 till 18.00hrs (last admission at 17.30hrs). During winter (1st October till 31st March) open Monday to Sunday from 09.00 till 17.00hrs (last admission at 16.30hrs). The prehistoric site of Hagar Qim consists of a group of monumental megalithic buildings. These were built during the late Neolithic, around 5,000 years ago. The largest megalith used in any of the Maltese 'temples', measuring up to 6.4 metres, is located within this temple.Today these buildings are usually called "temples" however we know very little about what went on inside them. The nearest site to Hagar Qim is that of Mnajdra, which is about 500 metres downhill to the west. A fully accessible Visitor's Centre offers numerous attractions in itself, including an audio-visual hall and interactive displays that assist visitors in understanding the historical and archaeological background of the surrounding megalithic templesShelters, financed by European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), have been built over the Hagar Qim Temples and the nearby Mnajdra Temples, to protect them from the elements and help preserve them for future generations.Malta's temples and the Hal Saflieni Hypogeum are designated UNESCO World Heritage sites.

One cannot help but to compare the remains of this millenia old temple complex with other sites such as Angkor Wat, Machu Picchu and Ollantaytambo. It's as old if not older than Skara Brae in the Orkney Islands. One can see the many engineering features in the stone slabs. Features such as holes in the walls by doorways that allows... More

Amazing that you can still get so close to this amazing temple. So many wonders of the world you have to view from a distance. The short video helps to understand the historic value of this site.

Should you arrive at this site by bus upon an excursion, you will probably need to get your skates on in order to see Mnajdra too. Skip the video show if you have missed the allotted time, and carry on up to Hagar Qim. It is a long descent down to Mnajdra via a steep narrow path, so it well... More

Why wouldn't you go see the oldest free standing building in the world? Fun video to start tour and short walk to visit the well preserved site. 20 euro is a little steep- but still interesting.

While I applaud the decision to protect this site from the ravages of the elements, it does make the entire place very seem slightly unreal. It also affects the light with the result that the stones are somewhat bland in tone. This, to a certain extent, affected my enjoyment of the site. However, I would recommend it to anyone who...

Great place to visit to just blow your mind with the age, 3500 BC is just mad! Great explanation and a 3D film show paints the picture, then a 5 minute walk to the temple itself which is well preserved and very well laid out

I love this kind of stuff. It's amazing to see what people were able to do 3600 years ago! Fascinating for me, but boring for people who like to shop! It's also a spectacularly beautiful site.

Took a bus from Valetta to visit the temples, and had a great time. The bus stops are really close and buses run very regularly. Started out watching the 4D film, which is an interesting story on the origins of the temples, and then took a slow wander around the exhibits - all had descriptions and information. No need for...
