Ggantija Island of Gonzo, Malta

Ggantija

Island of Gonzo, Malta

Description

On the Maltese island of Gozo, stands a complex of two megalithic temples which were constructed around 3600 B.C., a time when metal tools were not yet available to the natives and the wheel had not yet invented. And so many of us wonder how these temples were built. Figurines and statuettes associated with fertility have been discovered as well, leaving experts to believe that Ggantija may have been the site of a fertility cult. The stone temples are the second-oldest religious structures ever found.
