Expert review of Tarxien Temple Complex
Built from 5,000 years ago, The Tarxien Temples are amongst the oldest sophisticated stone buildings in the world and have World Heritage status. They are the most decorated of Malta’s remarkable Stone Age temples with carved altars, huge bowls and the largest of the ‘Fat Ladies of Malta’ - voluminous statues that were probably part of a fertility cult. These temples are now surrounded by a modern suburb but they are no less interesting because of that.
Adult admission is 6 euros, children aged 12-17 and over-60s are 4.50 euros, and children aged 6-12 are 3 euros. Under-fives can go free.
