OPENING HOURS: During Summer (1st April till 30th September) open Monday to Sunday from 08.00 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). The prehistoric site of Hagar Qim consists of a group of monumental megalithic buildings. These were built during the late Neolithic, around 5,000 years ago. The largest megalith used in any of the Maltese 'temples', measuring up to 6.4 metres, is located within this temple.Today these buildings are usually called "temples" however we know very little about what went on inside them. The nearest site to Hagar Qim is that of Mnajdra, which is about 500 metres downhill to the west. A fully accessible Visitor's Centre offers numerous attractions in itself, including an audio-visual hall and interactive displays that assist visitors in understanding the historical and archaeological background of the surrounding megalithic templesShelters, financed by European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), have been built over the Hagar Qim Temples and the nearby Mnajdra Temples, to protect them from the elements and help preserve them for future generations.Malta's temples and the Hal Saflieni Hypogeum are designated UNESCO World Heritage sites.

Recommend getting here early as parking is limited. Small museum was informational and the 4D movie was neat. Museum had a room for children to explore which was nice for our 2 yr old. You can walk through the prehistoric temples which is really cool. Also a short nature trail you can hike that takes you along the coast for... More

The ruins are really interesting and the audio guide is helpful - the views over the sea are stunning from the top of the hill. The weird film you have to sit through in the visitors centre before you go to the ruins- called something like a 4D experience, even though no one ever asked for that- is distinguished only...

At almost 6,000 years old, the temple complex is the site of some of the oldest buildings on the planet and is located right on the coast with spectacular views across the sea. The Visitor Centre is excellent and the temples themselves are incredible, enhanced by the interesting historic information boards dotted around the site

Crowded buses, narrow roads but well worth it. This is an incredible sight. The whole complex is well laid out, explained and quite inspiring. Location itself is worth a visit. For archaeology fans not to be missed. Get Bus 74 from Valetta and about a 10 minute walk to the site.

This temple is one of a chain situated on the island, and is on of the most old buildings in the world set up for worship. This place was 'restored' and covered to prevent further erosion by the natural elements. An information office with interractive material can be found near this site. It is also 500m away from the Oldest... More

Nearby the pictoresque small fishing village of Wied iz-Zurrieq and Blue Grotto. Further on another tiny fishing village Ghar Lapsi and then Dingli Cliffs. Avery peacful area not to miss visiting.

Although we took the bus most days, we opted for a driver for a long day trip.Our driver, Michael Galea took us to Hagar Qim Temples. After exploring these extraordinary temples which were built 5,000 years ago we walked down to the Mnajdra temples. From there we walked to the Hagar Qim Restaurant just above the car park and had...

This is a must-see sight if you are interested in history. These two temples are amongst the oldest stone temples in the world. They are remarkably well preserved after around 5000 years existence, and are under cover to protect them from the elements and erosion. You are able to walk around them and touch the stones in places. A short... More

Well worth the visit and time. How often can you see 5000 year + old structures? For additional 1 euro you can purchase headphones that work for both temples (located next to each other). Clean and spacious restrooms as well as small gift shop on location. The onsite restaurant takes credit cards for purchases of 20 euro or more. The... More

Who were the people that built this UNESCO designated site is anybodies guess but as the oldest free standing architecture on the planet, it is worth of a visit.I was awestruck by the size of the stones, whether uprights 25 feet high, or slabs of limestone 6 x 6 x 5 foot slabs raised five feet above ground level.
