The prehistoric temples of Malta are probably the earliest free-standing megalithic
monuments in the world, constructed between 3800-2400 BC. They consist of
semicircular chambers (apses) having three or more lobes, surrounded by a
megalithic external wall. Objects and furnishings found clearly show a cult
of the dead and the veneration of a corpulent fertility deity.
These megaliths are awe-imposing and very beautiful,
a must for every stone lover!
