The Templo de Debod is probably the oldest and most striking monument in Madrid. It is an Egyptian temple built during 2nd century BC in the Nubian Valley near the River Nile in Egypt. The monument was transported to Madrid by aeroplane and given as a present to Spain by the Egyptian government to thank them for helping Egypt to build the Aswan High Dam. And so for this reason, a visit to this temple is said to be like being in Egypt.

Today, you can see this monument which is located in Parque del Oeste. It has a chapel dedicated to King Adijalamani, some lateral chapels, a sanctuary and a flat roof.
