Ġgantija] (“Giants’ Tower”) is a Neolithic, megalithic temple complex on the Mediterranean island of Gozo. The Ġgantija temples are the earliest of a series of megalithic temples in Malta.

The Ġgantija temples are older than the pyramids of Egypt. Their makers erected the two Ġgantija temples during the Neolithic Age (c. 3600-2500 BC), which makes these temples more than 5500 years old and the world’s second oldest manmade religious structures, after Göbekli Tepe. Together with other similar structures, these have been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Megalithic Temples of Malta.

The temples were possibly the site of a Fertility cult; archeologists believe that the numerous figurines and statues found on site are connected with that cult. According to local Gozitan folklore, a giantess who ate nothing but broad beans and honey bore a child from a man of the common people. With the child hanging from her shoulder, built these temples and used them as places of worship.

Enter the neolithic structures probably built 2 to 7000 years ago on Gozo and Malta Islands. Ggantja, Hagar Qim and Mnajdra sites show us that many heavy stones have been excavated, removed on a quite long distance, curved and arisen to fit perfectly the stones already placed, and assembled in anti-seismic circular structures.

Seculo Nuovo, Vita Nuova, Waltz op. 498 (New Century, New Life) is a composition of Carl Michael Ziehrer and it is complimented by photos of four very old Megalithic temples found in Malta and Gozo.

Ziehrer was born in Vienna. He was taught music by Simon Sechter, a famous Viennese hat-maker.

Ziehrer studied music at the Vienna Conservatory, and began his career as a conductor in 1863. He was also a bandmaster. He was one of the musical rivals of Johann Strauss II, another composer of light music in Vienna.

We are showing you Four Megalithic Temples found in Malta and Gozo. All have been described by the World Heritage Sites Committee as “unique architectural masterpieces.” In 1992 they were designated a UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Ġgantija (Giants’ Tower) is a Neolithic, megalithic temple complex in the village of Xaghra on the Mediterranean island of Gozo. The Ġgantija temples are the earliest of a series of megalithic temples in Malta. Their makers erected the two Ġgantija temples during the Neolithic Age (c. 3600-2500 BC), which makes these temples more than 5500 years old and the world’s oldest manmade religious structures.

Ħaġar Qim (Standing/Worshipping Stones) is a megalithic temple complex dating from the Ġgantija phase (3600-3200 BC) found in the village of Qrendi. The Megalithic Temples of Malta are amongst the most ancient religious sites on Earth. In 2009 work was completed on a protective tent. (Some photos were taken before the tent was erected).

Mnajdra is a megalithic temple complex found in Qrendi on the southern coast Malta. Mnajdra is approximately 500 metres from the Ħaġar Qim megalithic complex. Mnajdra was built circa around the fourth millennium BC. In 2009 work was completed on a protective tent. (Some photos were taken before the tent was erected).

The Tarxien Temples consist of three separate, but attached, temple structures. The main entrance is a reconstruction dating from 1956, when the whole site was restored. At the same time, many of the decorated slabs discovered on site were relocated indoors for protection at the Museum of Archaeology in Valletta. The first temple has been dated to approximately 3100 BC and is the most elaborately decorated of the temples of Malta. The middle temple dates to about 3000 BC, and is unique in that, unlike the rest of the Maltese temples, it has three pairs of apses instead of the usual two. The east temple is dated at around 3100 BC. The remains of another temple, smaller, and older, having been dated to 3250 BC, are visible further towards the east.

Of particular interest at the temple site is the rich and intricate stonework, which includes depictions of domestic animals carved in relief, altars, and screens decorated with spiral designs and other patterns. Demonstrative of the skill of the builders is a chamber set into the thickness of the wall between the South and Central temples and containing a relief showing a bull and a sow.

This is a project completed as part fulfilment of course unit MSL4204 – e-learning course taken at the University of Malta.

The main idea behind this video was to link today’s technology with one of my main teaching subjects, Religious Knowledge. This walk around the Ggantija Temples enables students all over Malta, Gozo and the world to experience what it feels like walking around these mystical temples. In today’s world, sometimes, taking school-age students to roam around these places of interest can cause a lot of ‘time loss’, I thought that instead of taking the students to the temples, I bring the experience of the temples to the students, in the classroom and anywhere in the world.

I would like to thank particularly my friend Joshua Gauci for lending me his GoPro and the staff of Heritage Malta – Ggantija Temples, Xaghra Gozo, Malta, for their assistance.

Ggantija er et tempelkompleks af megalitter, bygget i yngre stenalder på øen Gozo i Middelhavet. Ggantija-templerne er de tidligste af en række megalit-templer på Malta. Folket der byggede dem opførte de to Ggantija-templer i yngre stendalder (ca. 3600-2500 f.kr.); templerne er således ca. 5500 år gamle og blandt de ældste menneskeskabte religiøse bygninger.

Los Templos de Ggantija en la isla de Gozo, son los vestigios de una cultura de 5000 años de antigüedad, datan de la Edad de Cobre alrededor del 1300-3500 a.C. Es una de las construcciones más antiguas que se conocen. Situado sobre una planicie, tiene unas hermosas vistas a su alrededor.
Con una estructura muy simple y rudimentaria, el templo resulta impresionante por su tamaño, en particular sus muros exteriores (fotos 1 y 2), que cuenta la leyenda fueron construidos por una giganta, y de ahí su nombre. Los bloques de piedra caliza llegan a pesar hasta 20 toneladas (fotos 3 y 4), y proceden de una cantera situada al otro lada del valle, y posiblemente transportados rodando con la ayuda de las piedras redondeadas que se encuentran diseminadas a la entrada de los templos. Para situarlos en posición vertical, se utilizaron rampas de tierra. Era una sociedad avanzada, se aprecian por ejemplo agujeros tallados en las rocas en los que se sujetaban las puertas que tenían por objeto separar a los sacerdotes de los fieles (foto 5). Otros agujeros en el suelo, eran para derramar la sangre de los sacrificios. Suelos (foto 6), altares (fotos 7 y 8), y todo tipo de estructuras, revela que se trataba de una compleja sociedad organizada y con prácticas religiosas. Todo este conjunto se cree que estaba dedicado a una diosa de la fertilidad…
