in World Heritage Sites

The Hypogeum is a labyrinthine complex of man-made chambers hewn out of the limestone extending some 11 metres below ground. It appears to have been used both as a burial site and as a temple. Neolithic man carved out the Hypogeum using only antlers and stone picks as tools, and in semi darkness. The Hypogeum is made up of three superimposed levels. The upper level resembles the earlier rock-cut tombs found elsewhere on the Islands. The middle level, hewn out during the temple period (3800 - 250

in World Heritage Sites

Tarxien Temples - These are certainly the most beautifully decorated and the largest temples. It is, in fact, a temple complex. These beautiful temples lie in the village of Tarxien not far from the Hypogeum. These temples may be considered as the cathedral of megalithic culture in Europe. The perfect architectural discipline of especially the middle temple of Tarxien surpasses in beauty and perfection all the other megalithic temples of the Maltese islands.
