Watch a 4-D film in the visitor center to learn about the 5,000 years of history associated with the temple. View a prehistoric chamber with an elliptical formation in alignment with the summer solstice sunrise so that, at dawn on the first day of summer, the rays of light pass through the hole and illuminate the chamber. Walk down one of the nature trails to the lookout tower for a view of the nearby island and nature reserve. The temple has convenient parking facilities and is easily accessible by bus.

  • Loved the 3D audio intro. Great museum and intro to the temples. Please don't touch them - our tour guide kept telling people not to touch the stones, they are very fragile!

  • The Hagar Qim Temples are prehistoric, they are over 1,000 years older than the pyramids in Egypt and Stonehenge in England. If in Malta, you truly should take the time to visit here.

  • This was a great experience! Remarkable construction built thousands of years ago. The ticket was €10 per person. We bought the tickets at the ticket office on the day of the visit. You can even download a free voice guide application that explains the temple constructions as you walk around (there are clear labels indicating when to press play on a particular recording and it will explain specific area of the temple). This was a great gesture by the company. Please note that there are two temples about 500 meters apart. You can actually take a ride that will cost you €1 one way if you don't like to walk on a hot summer day back to exit once you visited the temple located further away. This is actually good for elderly. In general it was a great experience to be able to see and touch the structures tha were built so long ago that we don't even know exactly when. There are many unanswered questions about these temples. Go ahead visit and enjoy the view! Highly recommend!
  • Tickets to visit both sites cost €10 for an adult and it is worth a visit. There's a short 4D video before you go to the sites and an audio guide you can download as you walk around. Amazing to step back in time and wander through the sites.
