Ħaġar Qim Temples

The temple of Ħaġar Qim, excavated for the first time in 1839, dates to c. 3600 - 3200 BC. It stands on a hilltop overlooking the sea and the islet of Fifla. Just 500m away from Hagar Qim, further towards the cliff face, lies another remarkable temple site, Mnajdra set in a hollow above the Southern cliffs. The surrounding area, which is typical of Mediterranean garigue and spectacular in its starkness and isolation, is designated a Heritage Park. Much of interest has been unearthed at Hagar Qim, notably a decorated pillar altar, two table-altars and some of the ‘fat lady' statues on display in the National Museum of Archaeology, Valletta.
