Prehistoric Malta Half Day - 4 hour tour
Visiting Hagar Qim Complex - Visitors Centre, Hagar
& Mnajdra Temples
(UNESCO sites), Ghar
An insight into an era
dominated by Neolithic man on a tour that will unfold our ancient history
dating back a staggering 5000years.
We start our visiting the Hagar Qim Temple Complex which includes Hagar Qim
and Mnajdra Temples. Before entering the temples
we start at the new visitors centre which will help you understand how these
magnificent temples where built over 5000 years ago! We then continue with a
tour to the Hagar
This temple has the largest and heaviest megaliths out of all the temple
sites around the Maltese
Islands, some slabs
weighing a staggering 20 tons. Also forming part of this temple complex is
the Mnajdra Temple which lies tucked on a slope in
the cliffs, overlooking the tiny isle of Filfla. This site is probably the
most atmospheric of all Malta's
temples and during the Equinox, on the 20th March and the 22nd September, the
rays of the sun pass directly through the temple's main doorway and light up
the main axis. The rays of sun during the Solstices light up the summer table
and the winter table alternately.
The second part of our tour includes a visit to the Ghar Dalam
Cave. The Ghar Dalam
Cave is a highly important site as
it was here that the earliest evidence of human settlement on Malta,
some 7,000 years ago, was discovered. This huge cavern is 144 metres deep,
but only the first 80 metres are accessible. The lowermost layers date back
to the Pleistocene Age (180,00 years ago) and to the end of the last Ice Age
(16,000 years ago) and contained the fossilised bones of dwarf elephants,
hippopotami, red deer, bear, fox, wolf, micro-mammals and birds.
At this stage our tour comes to an end and we make our back to the cruise
