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.

Leaves you wondering how this could all be done so many tears ago, clearly this was very important to the builders.

This Temple was declaired as the oldest building in the world. It was erected to worship the Sun god. It was 'restored' and protected from erosion by the elements. it is just 500m down the slope from Hagar Qim, another temple around 1000yrs younger than Imnajdra.

Different than Hagar Qim. Well worth the pleasant walk and nice view along the way. Your entrance to Hagar Qim covers Mnajdra Temples as well.

Part of the Hagar Qim temple ticket price of 10 euros. Well worth it. Buy the audio guide for 1 euro and bring your own headphones along. If not, you will have to hold audio guide to your ear the whole time.

This is part of the Hagar Qim Temple complex and the same 10 Euro ticket will give you entry to both amazing complexes. See my entry for Hagar Qim for further information on the site.

Definitely worth a visit and the 500 m walk down hill (and back up!). An excellent insight into the early history of Malta. A helpful visitor centre followed by a visit to Hagar Qim first and then Mnajdra temples. I'm amazed that you can get so close to them. It gives a real appreciation of life over 5000 years ago....

Like the nearby Hagar Qim, the Mnajdra Temple is utterly captivating. It has been beautifully preserved, excavated and presented for visitors with lots of English panels to explain the temple, it's significance and the dig there. Beautiful coastal location overlooking the Mediterranean near the Dingli Cliffs. Loved it here. Strongly recommend it.
