Temple of Debod, Madrid Overview

The Temple of Debod was originally built in Aswan in Upper Egypt and was dedicated to the goddess Isis in Philae. Then, this ancient Egyptian temple was dismantled and completely rebuilt in Madrid in Spain.

An ancient Egyptian temple that was built in the 2nd century BC at the village of Debod, the Debod temple has been reconstructed in the West Park of Madrid, located near the Plaza Espana Square and the Royal Palace. It was thrown open to the public since 1972. The temple is dedicated to the gods Isis and Amon. The site was originally located near Aswan and when the Aswan dam was being built in 1960, many valuable monuments had the danger of being destroyed. So, the UNESCO made an appeal to these countries to help save the monuments and then the temple was dismantled stone by stone in 1969 and reconstructed in the present day location of Madrid.
