The temple of Ħaġar Qim, excavated for the first time in 1839, dates to c. 3600 – 3200 BC. It stands on a hilltop overlooking the sea and the islet of Fifla. Just 500m away from Ħaġar Qim, further towards the cliff face, lies another remarkable temple site, Mnajdra set in a hollow above the Southern cliffs.

The surrounding area, which is typical of Mediterranean garigue and spectacular in its starkness and isolation, is designated a HeritagePark. Much of interest has been unearthed at Ħaġar Qim, notably a decorated pillar altar, two table-altars and some of the ‘fat lady’ statues on display in the National Museum of Archaeology, Valletta.
