Temple Model - Ta Hagrat

The temple model found at Ta Hagrat.

This little model is carved from globigerina limestone and was discovered in 1923 during excavations at the
Ta Hagrat Temple at Mgarr conducted by Sir Themistocles Zammit (1). The model shows the typical
structure of a Maltese temple including the trilithon facade, narrow-broad walling technique and
upper layers of horizontal corbelling.
