The Mnajdra Temples are three conjoined Neolithic temples on the southern coast of Malta. Dating from about 3000 BC, Mnajdra is reminiscent of the even earlier complex at Ggantija on Gozo. Mnajdra ("mna-ee-dra") is less than 1 km downhill from the Hagar Qim temple complex. The two complexes seem to have built at different times, and their relationship is not known.
