Ggantija Temples, Malta

The Ggantija Temples in Malta are the oldest free standing structures in the world, pre-dating Stonehenge and the Pyramids of Egypt. Ggantija is a megalithic temple complex on the Mediterranean island of Gozo (part of Malta). The two temples of Ggantija on the island of Gozo are notable for their gigantic Neolithic structures, which were erected during the Neolithic Age (c. 3600-2500 BC).

They are the world's oldest religious structures and probably the site of an Earth Mother Goddess Fertility Cult, with numerous figurines and statues found on site believed to be connected with that cult.
