Temple of Debod
An ancient Egyptian temple which was rebuilt in Madrid, Spain. It was built originally 15 km south of Aswan in southern Egypt. In 1960, due to the construction of the Great Dam of Aswan UNESCO made an international call to save this rich historical legacy. As a sign of gratitude for the help provided by Spain in saving the temples of Abu Simbel, the Egyptian state donated the temple of Debod to Spain in 1968. The temple was rebuilt in Parque del Oeste and opened to the public in 1972. (T&P)
