Borg in-Nadur Temple

Borg in-Nadur is a prehistoric temple in the South of Malta

The Borg in-Nadur Temple in Malta is located close to the sea at Birzebbuga and was excavated by Dr Margaret Murray between 1922 and 1927. The depth of the deposits was very shallow and the remains were covered by material from the Bronze Age village which lay over the same area.

The Borg in-Nadur Temple was built during the last phase of the temple period, around 2500 BC, and it was used by the Bronze Age people. Most probably its rooms became part of the Bronze Age village. The megaliths forming the walls of the Borg in-Nadur Temple are now only about 50 cm (1.6 feet) high and a four apse plan can be seen at the centre. Another small megalithic structure lies South-East of the main building.

The remains of a sizeable, protective wall lie close by, facing inland, suggesting that the villagers were more troubled by inland attacks than sea assaults. Tools made of stones, flints and artefacts were discovered here.
