Templo de Debod
Templo de Debod is located in Madrid, Spain. It is an ancient Egyptian temple. Initially the temple was built 15 kilometres south of Aswan. It was contributed to the Goddess Isis in Philae. The King of Meroe started building a single room chapel for the God Amun in the early part of the 2nd century BC. The temple was later extended on all four sides. It is 12 by 15 meters in size. UNESCO made the announcement to save the temple in 1960 due to the building of the Great Dam of Aswan. The Egyptians donated this temple to Spain in 1968 to honour their assistance in saving the temples of Abu Simbel. The temple was built on one of the parks in Spain called the Parque de Rosales. It is near to the Royal Palace of Madrid. In 1972 the temple was opened to public.
