There is one back wall enclosing the two temples of Ggantija. Huge megaliths were used and it is perhaps the best example found in all of the Maltese temples of how the 'architects' achieved great stability in their construction using the header and stretcher technique. This technique involves wedging boulders alternating lengthwise and end on.
