About The Debod Temple

The Debod Temple (Templo de Debod) is an Ancient Egyptian temple in Madrid gifted to Spain in the 1960s.

Originally built in Aswan by Kushite King Adikhalamani, the Debod Temple dates back to the second century BC and was added to over the centuries, including by some of the rulers of the Ptolemaic dynasty as well as by the Ancient Romans.

Made up of three main reconstructed monuments, the Debod Temple is a beautiful site surrounded by a pool of water.
