Debod Temple of Madrid
The Debod Temple is a temple of ancient Egypt currently located near the Plaza de España in Madrid.
It was a gift from Egypt to Spain in 1968, as compensation for the Spanish aid, following the international appeal made by UNESCO to save the temples of Nubia, notably that of Abu Simbel, in danger of disappearing due to the construction of the Aswan Dam. Egypt has donated four of the saved temples to partner nations: Dendur to the United States, Ellesiya to Italy, Taff to Holland and Debod to Spain.
The Debod Temple was moved to Spain, stone by stone, standing in a manner that retains the same orientation in their place of origin, from east to west.
It has a history of 2200 years, and has significant additions of Ptolemaic and imperial Roman-era (from the first century BC to AD II). The Debod temple was located in the small town that bore this name (Debod), on the banks of the River Nile and was dedicated to the god Amun.
