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.

The temples give a chance to touch the antiquity now a days. The structures are restored in a grade that is very informative and demonstrative.

Facing the Mediterranean Sea the 2 temples are really nice. The museum next to them and the small movie help to understand the history of these 2 temples and why they are so unique. In addition to the 2 temples, the view to the sea...More

Very old, circa 1350BC, the temple is remarkably well preserved. You get to it past the Hagar Qim Temple, down a fairly steep slope, but can get the golf buggy back up for 1 Euro a head. Wear comfortable shoes.

Not much written while you walk round the temples to help explain things they found or archaeological interpretations of structures etc so kids (and adults) can get bored easily if they don't understand. Given the ticket price would have expected more of this. Make sure...More

If you think you work hard have a visit of this place and try and figure how they built this. That is hard work! Pretty inspiring and well laid out. Well worth visit.

Older than the Pyramids and Stonehenge, these megalithic structures are absolutely fascinating. You should watch the film first as it is really good at explaining the history and design of the temples. The Mnajdra Temples are in the same complex (& ticket) as the famous...More

These second set of temples are included in the entry price for Hagar qim. Worth the walk down and up the slope again.

Just Amazing! The destination concept is excellent. 5D movie is a true introduction to temples viewing. Don't miss to feel sounds of deep history.

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