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.

Definitely worth a few moments to stop and think. Once you realize that parts of those are older than the pyramids, and all of this was made by human hand only, it strucks you how amazing is the mystery of the past. Really nice place.

This temple holds the Balancing of Male and Female Energies. You can feel the differences in the two sections. Absolutely wonderful. Take time to sit on the grounds and feel.

It is about a mile and a half, but on a nice sidewalk heading downhill so it's quite easy.
