The Temple of Debod is a temple dedicated to gods Isis and Amun originally built in Debod, Lower Nubia, Egypt, in the 2nd century BC.
The construction of the Great Dam of Aswan in 1960 posed a threat to the Temple and the other monuments in the area, therefore UNESCO launched a campaign to rescue the sites. Due to Spain’s invaluable help in relocating the Abu Simbel temples which were also threatened by the construction of the Dam, Egypt decided to donate the Temple of Debod to Spain. The temple was transported and reconstructed piece by piece and is now located in Parque del Oeste in Madrid, within a short walking distance from Plaza de España and the Palacio Real. Entrance to the temple itself is possible and it is free, visit the official website for opening hours and other information.
