The Temples in Tarxien

Megalithic Temple

This temple, dating from around c.4,000 to 2,500 BC is located close to the place where I lived in Tarxien.  In fact, my friends and I used to play among the now protected and untouchable rocks when we were young children. This was before they became tourist attractions. I still remember seeing blood stains, from sacrifices on the altar rocks.
