Original Egyptian temple in the middle of Madrid - what's not to like?

It's a nice place to spend a little while, a nice escape from the hustle and bustle of the Plaza de Espana area. The queues to get indie the temple are a little long, but otherwise, I'd recommend.

I wouldn't recommend making a special trip to visit this unless you're in the area and have some time to spare. My boyfriend and I stayed at a flat 15 mins away walking so we decided to drop by. I'm a fan of archaeological sites but this one is quite small and there's not a lot to see. However, because... More

Debod Temple is smaller than expected but the fountain and surrroundings make it just perfect in size. Dawn is breath-taking. When we were there, a wedding proposal went on. The girl was just there, watching her phone ... likely his partner was late. Then people started to arrive and surround her. She was perplexed when a seat was handed over... More

As we were walking around for another look at the palace we saw this amid the water ... what is that .. ah! Of course - it's an Egyptian temple in the middle of Madrid!! Strange as that sounds it's worth the 20 minutes or so required to look around and the history of it is quite a story itself.... More

An Egyptian temple in Madrid.. Sounded unusual so went to check it out. Queue was around 20min and it doesn't take that long to look around inside. Lovely to look at from outside and had a peaceful stroll around. Surrounding area has great views.

You cannot miss watching the sunset from this spot within walking distance from our hotel we were able to view a gorgeous sunset set and watch as the beautiful shadows reflected across the reflection pool and thru the temples good people watching and a romantic spot for couples

The temple its self is nice to look at but realistically, you will se the entire thing in 20 minutes. Its quite small with narrow halls and if there is a que then its hard to make your way around it. Nice location but not very exciting.
