Kordin III

Of the three temples that were originally excavated on Kordin Hill, Kordin III is the only one to have survived. The word “survived” is being used loosely here, as much of the original structure has been obliterated following a direct hit by an enemy bombshell in a World War II air attack. The temples are believed to have been constructed in 3700BC and are interesting in that the forecourt is not composed of the typical torba (or beaten limestone material) but is stone-paved.

One one the most notable features is an unusual, 2.75 metre trough with with seven bowl-like depressions carved into it – perhaps serving as receptacles for water or as grinding mills.

The pitiful state of Kordin III does its bit to ensure that this site will never a huge crowd puller, you may however visit by making prior arrangements with Wirt Artna. Rates for smaller groups tend to be high (ca. a staggering €20 p.p.) whilst a visit by larger groups may be more reasonably priced.
