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.

Of all the neolithic temples on Malta and Gozo (incl. Tarxien and Ggantija), Hagar-Qim (pronounced: Hadjar-Im) is by far the biggest, best preserved and most interesting to visit. Your visit will start with a short but fun multimedia show (incl. rain from the cinema ceiling!), after that you're left to your own devices in expoloring the temple (and the smaller... More

The mind boggles as to how they managed to make these structures those many thousands of years ago, better by far than Stonehenge, more detail structure and complexity, absolutely wondrous! Make the effort and get here.

I was very excited to see the temples. Yes they are a bunch of rocks but the history behind them is amazing. It would be great if there was even more information around though and unfortunately a lot of the stone carvings had been taken out and put into some other museums IN Malta I understand this is to keep...

This is an absolute must visit! Two of the oldest standing buildings in the world on one site overlooking the sea. We entered at opening time (9am) and were alone for more then one hour.....that was very special. When lots of people arrived we walked along the coastal path to the lookout tower and sunbathed on the rocks totally alone.... More

Go to see one of the Wester World's most old sites. Vestiges of ancient man. The sites are well-curated with good signage and good walkways. The 3-movie at the welcome center is forgettable and the other info at the welcome center just OK. Go because this place is historically important.

Hagar Quim is (as well as all the temples on Malta) very interesting to look at. We were there in utter rain, and it still was amazing, since the temley are protected from rain.

You actually visit two temple sites. Hagar Qim is impressive but it is definitely worth the short walk to see Mnjardra which is perched on the cliff top. The size and scale are impressive but leaves so much unanswered about these amazing sites (because scholars simply don't know!) The protective covering over the temples is quite cool even if it...

These temples are very ancient and a must-see for those who are into archeology and very old ruins. The ruins are on a par with the standing stones at Stonehenge, pre-dating them.

This display starts with an outstanding audio visual 4D experience. When you go you will know of which I speak...way cool!! they have done a remarkable job on uncovering the secrets of the area. I was amazed at how close to the actual display you can get. Very photographical. Well worth the admission price.
