(56422) Mnajdra = 2000 GV3
Discovered 2000 April 2 by J. Tichá and M. Tichý at Kleť.
 Mnajdra is a prehistoric temple complex built with large limestone blocks, located on the southern coast of Malta. The lower temple is full of significant solar alignments, observable at equinoxes and solstices, and thus was probably used as an neolithic astronomical observation or calendrical site.
