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.

We decided to visit this place on a cloudy day in the morning. We took a taxi there which cost EUR 23 with the E-cab from Sliema. You have to call to get this taxi but we found more reasonable as a white taxi costs more. Some people were visiting with public transport. The entrance tickets cost EUR 10 for... More

The Hagar Qim Temples were very impressive, and are packed with information. The prices are inexpensive. Also, I highly recommend purchasing the audioguide. To begin with, before seeing the exhibition, there was a short 4D Film, which is shown 4 times an hour. Afterwards, there is a comprehensive museum about the temples. Both temples are well preserved, and are quite... More

I did not have time to include the 4 D movie offerred with the €7.5 Seniors ticket. Went direct to the covered site and I was impressed. There is actually some very finished rooms and walls not seen in other sites. They have put some money in this site and it is covered completely although still open on the sides.... More

This is the site of the "oldest temple on earth" Not sure I truly agree with the statement but that the claim. From 3600 BC, this was a temple for the goddess of fertility. The place is very well maintained and the short movie is very nice but not impressive. The tour itself including the movie, the museum and the... More

Being a historian, it is only natural for me to love old stuff. The Hagar Qim temple is very impressive, and I believe it will seem impressive for everyone. There's a small museum in connection to the site, and a small theatre where we were shown a short film about the history of the temple. Super cool experience. As students... More

I bought a Malta Heritage pass for €50. And it was excellent value for money – this and many more sites are included. Firstly the introductory exhibition, which included a 4D film animation, amazing – One of the best introductory exhibitions I have seen anywhere. The site is beautiful, located on the coast – in spring, when I visited, there... More

We were there in March 2017. If you are interested in archeology it is a 'must see'. We took the Publictransportbus from Malta centrum ;this gives you a 'free" sightseeing trip at the same time.from the busstop it is approx. 15 min walk to the temple.There is also a museum and restaurant.

Oh my goodness. Awesome sense of history in this place. Unesco site... Deserving of such respect. Has a modern sail thing over it to protect it from the elements which is modern and I'm not sure off.... A bit too contrasting for me. A prehistoric temple of bronze age Malta and the fertility mother goddess worthing peoples. Lots of huge... More

Great video 3D and beyond introduction followed by a visit of 2 great neolithic temples and, just take the time to take the nature walk along the cliff. Beautiful views and flora.

The temples are within walking distance of each other and are both included in the cost of the ticket. I used the hop on/hop off bus to get here which drops off at the visitor's centre.
