The site comprises three main temples, with a fourth in ruins. The age of the temples is a matter of some controversy, though it is generally believed that they were built between 3500 and 2500 BC.
This complex is the largest and most recent of the Copper Age temples in Malta. It is also the most elaborately embellished. No metal tools were used and the ornamentation, in the form of spiral reliefs and carved animals (sheep or goats), suggests a sophisticated community of temple builders and carvers.
