Ggantija 1

Thought it was a humid day with too much haze for good photos, I went back to Gozo to do a quick tour with my taxi driver (photo later). The next two postings are fro Ggantija, an ancient human temple. This and similar structures on Malta are believed to be the oldest free-standing buildings in the world--far older than Stonehenge and even older than the pyramids. Many Earth Goddess figurines have been found on the island in association with the temples. I have yet to make reservations to see the main ones on Malta, but will do so.
