Templo de Debod Madrid

The Templo de Debod, an Egyptian temple was built in the fourth century B.C. at the village of Debod, near the sacred temple island of Philae. The Debod Temple was dedicated to the gods Amon and Isis. It moved to Spain, because many buildings in Egypt were in danger of being flooded, because of the construction of the Aswan High Dam. In 1968 the temple was donated to the Spain government for their help. It was reconstructed in the Parque de la Montaña and was officially opened to the public in 1972.
