|Description ||Tas-Silg is an ancient Maltese Temple just east of Marsaxlokk.
It was subsequently re-used and remodelled by the Phoenicians and the Romans and possibly christians. The Phoenicians conducted human sacrifices there. Only the foundation of the original Maltese neolithic temple remain. See arced stones. The rest of the site with remains of colonnades is quite interesting. The site is normally closed to the public, but one can apply for permission to visit with Malta Heritage. See website.|
|Oops! This must be one of those underwater temples that have been saved! East of Marsaxlokk puts it in the Mediterranean. It is actually north-west of Marsaxlokk.|
|Obviously the water is retained by the wall at the back of the photo.|
