Only about 500 meters away is the Mnjandr, another of the famous Maltese megalithic temples.

Private Tour to The Temples of Hagar Qim and Mnajdra From Any City | Points of Interest
The private tour is planned for you to explore the history of the great monolithic temples of Malta.
The imposing nature of these Neolithic constructions still causes many questions to researchers, and you can learn all the history that surrounds Hagar Qim and Mnajdra.
It is one of the oldest sacred structures in the world. It is believed to be about 5,000 years old, but its discovery was in 1839.
This temple retains a circular shape, which is associated with “the goddess of Malta”; a deity that researchers believe the early settlers of the island worshiped.
You will learn the most relevant facts and information about the site, since the private guide will be attentive so that you do not miss any detail throughout the tour.
Also, inside Hagar Qim is the heaviest megalith in Malta, averaging 5.2 meters in length and weighing some 57 tons.
According to researchers, at the time the builders used ramps and spherical stones to carry all the material to the site.
Also, you will see the niche and the chamber of women: in which different sculptures of fat women were found, which today are exhibited in the museum of Valletta.
But what is most striking is the altar inside one of its chambers, which during the summer solstice is illuminated by a hole designed in the outer wall exclusively to fulfill this function.
On the south coast of Malta, on the edge of the cliff, you will also find the monolithic temple Mnjandra. On our private tour you will explore every corner of this majestic monument.
As in the Hagar Qim, in this temple, its builders made different arrangements to detect the exact day of the spring and autumn solstice. Therefore, when dawn breaks on that day, and only on that day, a particular stone is illuminated.
Its monoliths are made of limestone, making it an extremely solid structure dating back more than 5,000 years.
These two temples are magnificent sites that you cannot miss. At the end of the tour, we will take you back to the agreed place.
If you want your visit to Malta to be as complete as possible, you should complement your trip with a tour to Gozo from Malta, so you can visit this island, considered one of the most striking of this archipelago.
