Hagar Qim On an included excursion visit the spectacular temple of Hagar Qim which stands in isolation on high, open ground on a cliff-top on Malta's south coast overlooking the islet of Fifla. Dating from around 3,300BC, the megalithic temple complex predates both Stonehenge and the Pyramids of Egypt by some 1,000 years. Only these stone temples remain of the first people to live on Malta, but they are surprisingly sophisticated. Hagar Qim, excavated in 1839, has revealed some important information and artefacts, including various altars, which tell us something of their religious culture. Early settlers, probably from Sicily, worshipped a `mother goddess' and some of their `fat lady' statues representing fertility, are now on display at the National Museum of Archaeology in Valletta.
