Excavations and recognition

The Ġgantija Temples were excavated in 1827 by Col. John Otto Bayer, the Lieutenant Governor of Gozo.

However, after his departure from Gozo, the temples were not properly maintained and soon filled with rubbish. It was only until after the Ġgantija temples were made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1980, that proper restoration occurred.
