Ta' Hagrat Temples

Ta' Hagrat consists of two important temples dating back to prehistoric times, highlighting how society worshipped gods back then

Ta’ Hagrat Temple in Mgarr, Malta is a UNESCO World Heritage site, consisting of two adjacent temples that were excavated under the direction of Sir Temi Zammit in the 1920s, after he was shown a field containing an interesting amount of stones.

The older temple dates to the Ggantija phase (3,600-3,200 BCE) and has a semi-circular façade with a monumental doorway. This leads into a rectangular central court that in turn leads to three semi-circular rooms, one on each side.

The second, smaller building is accessed through the eastern room of the larger building, which was modified in antiquity to make space for the other building.

One of the most notable finds from this excavation is a small limestone model of a roofed building which is now exhibited at the National Museum of Archaeology in Malta.

Due to the small size and fragility of the Ta' Hagrat Temple, only 15 visitors may be admitted at a time.
