The Skorba temples are located at Zebbiegh on the north side of the island around a kilometre from the village of Mgarr. It is considered to be one of the oldest temples on the Maltese islands.
Here we find two adjacent temples on this site, one is Skorba West (which is on the left side). This belongs to the earliest phase of megalithic construction Ggantija Phase 3600 to 3200 BC. Then Skorba East which is a four-apse temple, this was built at a later date in prehistory from the Tarxien Phase 3150 to 250 BC.

Due to being used through a long period of time these temples was utilized throughout the Neolithic Period from the Ghar Dalam phase to the Bronze Age. Before the temples were built there was a small village where the foundations of the temples were cut and laid through these deposits.
The site was identified by the Maltese archaeologist Sir Temi Zammit in 1914. Was partly examined by his son Charles in 1937. But between 1960 and 1963 the site was excavated by David H. Trump. This was compared to other sites which were excavated much earlier.
The dating of the site was carried out with modern methods of dating and although the site does not have much of its original structures and in not a very good condition, the importance lies with excavated important information. This was added to the UNESCO World Heritage Site listing.
