This temple was already badly damaged when the Corradino Lines, part of the harbour fortifications were built in the 1870s. Excavations were carried out by Vassallo around this time, and again in by Ashby and Peet (1913) but the WWII bombing of this area is though to have destroyed the remains which included a 6 apse structure similar to the central temple at nearby Tarxien. sals Posted by sals
