Nice visit to the temples, good display boards and the site is easily accessible from the city by bus or by car.

Worth a visit if you are in Malta. We drove and there was plenty of parking in the surrounding streets.

The Megalithic Tarxien Temples consist of what we were told are 3 separate stone temples but, they are so close together, they actually look like one complex. The oldest of these three temples is believed to have been built around 3100BC and the central temple...More

The complex is well set up with easy to walk ramps and boardwalks giving the visitor some insight into the ancient temples. Easy to get to by the public buses.

Hello David. I e-mailed Heritage Malta yesterday. They said that the Hal-Saflieni Hypogeum restorations should be over by mid-2017. So, hopefully, you will be able to view this site: if so, don't miss it. You can... More
