OPENING HOURS: During Summer (1st April till 30th September) open Monday to Sunday from 08.00 till 18.00hrs (last admission at 17.30hrs). During winter (1st October till 31st March) open Monday to Sunday from 09.00 till 17.00hrs (last admission at 16.30hrs). The prehistoric site of Hagar Qim consists of a group of monumental megalithic buildings. These were built during the late Neolithic, around 5,000 years ago. The largest megalith used in any of the Maltese 'temples', measuring up to 6.4 metres, is located within this temple.Today these buildings are usually called "temples" however we know very little about what went on inside them. The nearest site to Hagar Qim is that of Mnajdra, which is about 500 metres downhill to the west. A fully accessible Visitor's Centre offers numerous attractions in itself, including an audio-visual hall and interactive displays that assist visitors in understanding the historical and archaeological background of the surrounding megalithic templesShelters, financed by European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), have been built over the Hagar Qim Temples and the nearby Mnajdra Temples, to protect them from the elements and help preserve them for future generations.Malta's temples and the Hal Saflieni Hypogeum are designated UNESCO World Heritage sites.
