Located in the village of Xaghra, Ġgantija is a megalithic temple complex from the Neolithic (c. 3600–2500 BC). Predating the standing stones at Stonehenge and also the Great Pyramids of Giza, these two temples have been deemed a UNESCO World Heritage Site. They are the world’s second oldest existing manmade religious structures after Göbekli Tepe in present-day Turkey. The name, Ġgantija springs from the word ‘ġgant’, meaning giant in Maltese, as it was believed giants had constructed them due to their size. In fact some of the megaliths weigh over fifty tons and are over five metres in length.
