56329 Tarxien           Discovered 1999 Nov. 28 by J. Ticha and M. Tichy at Klet.
The Tarxien Temples on Malta are thought to date from between 3600 and 2500 B.C. There are four linked temples, built with massive stone blocks and decorated with spiral patterns and pitting, and reliefs of animals, which the discoverers visited in October 2002.
