Mnajdra Temple, Malta, 4000 BCE, visited August 2013

It was the hottest of days when we visited the prehistoric temples at Qrendi, Malta. First we saw Mnajdra. 

The covering is protective, but rather ruins the atmosphere....

Come on in....

These pressed dots are one of the first types of decoration seen in the prehistoric temples. 


  1. What a stunning place, Carrie. Thank you for the fact about the the pressed dots in prehistoric temple decoration - I had no idea.

    1. I was also fascinated by the introduction of decoration--spirals come in next, I believe, as will be shown in the next set of prehistoric temple photos, this time of Hagar Qim, a half-mile from Mnajdra.

      Thanks for your comment!
