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.

As with Hagar Qim these temples provide a fascinating perspective into Malta's ancient history. Majestic in proportions it is difficult to imagine how they were built at time with limited technological resources. Be prepared for 500m downhill jaunt in exposed conditions and then the uphill...More

Fantastic scenery, the temples were really interesting and in the museum there was an unexpected 3D video about the history of the temples.

Very well preserved and presented: they have mixed the old and new very tastefully and respectfully. On a clear day, the path to the lower part of the attraction has stunning views and the place is beautifully calm. The Visitor Centre is well put together...More

Archaeological site of the so called temple builders, a civilisation completely vanished of which we know very little. Really worthwhile to visit. Nice view on the sea also.

My wife and I visited this temple along with Hagar Qim as part of a guided evening tour with complementary nibbles and wine. Really well organized.

I liked this temple more, less to see but more photo opportunities. The way I see it it's the closest thing the Europeans have to a pyramid hehehe

It is 10 euros and it includes the Hagar Qim and Mnajdra temples, which are both amazing monuments.
