Abstract: Researching through Wikipedia, I came across the following information on Ta’ Ħaġrat Temples at Mġarr: “The Ta’ Ħaġrat Temples in Mġarr, Malta, is recognised as a Unesco World Heritage Site, along with several other Megalithic temples. They are among the most ancient religious sites on Earth. “The larger Ta’ Ħaġrat temple dates from the Ġgantija phase (3,600-3,200 BCE); the smaller is dated to the Saflieni phase (3,300-3,000 CE).” Upon reading these facts, one would expect that the local authorities would afford these temples the highest degree of protection, not just on paper but also through tangible means. Well, you guessed it... no place is too sacred for applicants on these blessed islands, it seems.
