  Hagar Qim
by pure1942

Two more of Malta?s megalithic temples are located just north of the Blue Grotto in Hagar Qim and Mnajdra. These temples are some of Malta?s best preserved temples. When we visited the temples themselves were closed for conservation and preservation work and there is a support structure shielding and protecting the temples. However, visitors can still approach the temples and you can get a good view of the temples from the path leading up to them. The temporary roofing and support system does detract alittle from the temples but the work being carried out is essential for the conservation and preservation of these ancient wonders and should be appreciated. The temples of Mnajdra is under similar preservation work and is also overshadowed by a support ?roof?. Some of Malta?s so called ?fat lady? statues were found at Hagar Qim and can be viewed at Valletta?s Archaeological Museum.

Directions: Buses 38 or 138 will take you to Hagar Qim. The walk along the coast from the Blue Grotto takes only around 20 minutes.
