Mnajdra, Qrendi

Explore Mnajdra, a prehistoric temple composed of massive limestone blocks that overlooks the sea and nearby islet. Watch a 4-D film in the visitor center to learn about the 5,000 years of history associated with the temple. View a prehistoric chamber with an elliptical formation in alignment with the summer solstice sunrise so that, at dawn on the first day of summer, the rays of light pass through the hole and illuminate the chamber. Walk down one of the nature trails to the lookout tower for a view of the nearby island and nature reserve. The temple has convenient parking facilities and is easily accessible by bus.

  • Great example of an ancient neolithic temple which was buried underground for thousands of years.  Fabric roofing also protects the site from the elements. Good 4D video to give an inside to the history of the side, Great to visit with the Heritage Malta pass.
  • Very interesting historical site. Good visitor facilities and the huge cover over the site provides respite from the sun and makes it easier to see the ruins. As this is a UNESCO World Heritage Site you are not allowed to walk among all the ruins. However, the walkways enable easy access to the most interesting areas.
