Temple of Debod

An icon of the city, surrounded by gardens and with spectacular views

The Temple of Debod is in the centrally-located Oeste Park and is one of the few complete pieces of Egyptian architecture that can be seen outside Egypt.

Dating back to the 2nd century BC, the temple was transported and rebuilt, stone by stone in 1970. It was opened to the public in 1972 and is surrounded by gardens and a small pool, offering one of the most emblematic postcard pictures of Madrid.

Two of the three original doors of the sanctuary are conserved on the Ptolemaic temple. Inside, in the first room is a large entrance hall or pronaos leading to the chapel, where the monarch appears carrying out ceremonies and sacrifices before the temple’s gods.

After the chapel is the sanctuary, dedicated to Amun of Debod. There are another two side chapels, a mammisi (divine birth place) from the Roman era and a terrace.
