OPENING HOURS: During Summer (1st April till 30th September) open Monday to Sunday from 09.00 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). 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 scale of the temple is quite remarkable considering the age (predating the Egyptian pyramids). The seaside setting was attractive. The site illustrates the Neolithic’s extraordinary knowledge of astronomy. It’s a very easy bus ride from Valletta with a recently renovated visitor’s center. There’s even...More

Beautiful ruins with informative description. Some bench in shade would be nice though. I was unable to breastfeed there due to the heat.

This is the second of the temples at the Triq Hagar Qim site - 10 euros for both. It takes a good 10 minutes walk downhill (exposed in the sun) and the same back - to get to this second temple. But it is different,...More

Mnajdra consists of three temples though to have been built between the 3600 -2500 BC. It is situated some 600 meters from another neolithic temple, that of Hagar Qim. they are to be found some 2 kilometers south east of the small village of Qrendi....More

Lovely place to visit especially if you are at Hagar Qim, a long incline between the 2 sites but for 1 euro each you can hire the service of a buggy to travel between the 2. Impressive site

Interesting archeological site, they say it was prior to stone age, who knows. Nice to visit in the middle of nowhere, protected with tents from intempéries. Fascinating.

I was surprised to learn it was older than Stonehenge! It's linked to the other temple by a quite a steep path with a great view over the coastline and the small island of Filfla. I had a Heritage Pass for all Malta Heritage sites...More

The Mnajdra Temples are part of the same site as nearby Hagar Qim and the ticket price includes entry to both. While these Temples were both interesting and a good introduction to the island's history, the best site for me remains the Temples on Gozo....More

We were looking forward to this but disappointed. The sites themselves are not of a scale that is per se awesome, and in this respect do not compare to Stonehenge or Machu Picchu, both of which we have visited. The setting could be quite impressive...More

It is 10 euros and it includes the Hagar Qim and Mnajdra temples, which are both amazing monuments.
