We visited as part of a tour. By the time we had listened to the guide in the museum, listened to the guide as we walked round the temple itself, we were left with so little time to wander by ourselves and take it all...More

Hard to believe that the temples predate Stonehenge! We visited as part of a tour from our cruise ship with a knowledgeable guide - just wish that we'd had more time to see the whole area.

These temples were amazing to visit and were older than Stonehenge. We were taken on a guided tour and were told what the different areas of the temples were used for and the significance of them. We only went to the temple at the top...More

History, simply history. Let your mind loose and wonder at how people built this place 5000 years ago. Crazy.

Well worth the 10 Euro entry fee. If you're visiting Malta you can get the 74 bus from Valletta which costs 2 Euro. Takes about 45 minutes. There are 2 Temple Sites so make sure you walk the 600 metres downhill to the second Temple...More

Hagar Qim is a well restored temple, with a smaller temple a little walk down the hill. You watch a "4D" film before, which gives you the history of the place, lasting around 10mins. Also a nature trail just off the main path, which was...More

The ruins at Hagar Qim are older than Stonehenge and more extensive. The work that has been done here gives an amazing look at how Neolithic men and women lived. The Solstice Ring demonstrates that without reading or writing, they were able to track the...More

These megalithic temples are the oldest free standing structures in the world. Enough said. Our children, 11 and 13 years, found these ruins fascinating. Worth the trip. The audio guide is essential to fully understand the structure. There is a fairly long, steep walk, so...More

You really need a guide for the Ħaġar Qim temples or it will be hard going. We went in a group and a guide and got the best out of it. Ħaġar Qim was built about 5000 years ago, older I believe than Stonehenge in...More

We came here to see some of Malta's really old world history and found a lot more than we expected. We enjoyed the 3D movie, and museum. Then we took a long walk, this isn't for the faint hearted, it looks easy walking down to...More

I can confirm that the tower is not open to visitors, or at least it was not on my visit in 2016 and was not looking as if any change was anticipated..

Yes you can get the regular bus. Just go to the main bus station. Behind the kiosk where they sell tickets is a helpful map which shows you which bus to get and even which stop to get off at. The buses announce stops in... More
