I really liked the temple from the outside and the view around, very beautiful and worth the visit. The temple was open when we came so we got in. We went inside the main hall and everything else was blocked so we got out after a few minutes. I didn't really understand the vibe of the place.

Wasn't really sure what to expect but I thought it would be a bit more grand than it was. Couldn't get into the building as there was a tv crew there. But the park was nice to walk round.

Visiting the park around Temple De Debod was just the perfect place for a stroll in the afternoon. in good company. While it may get chilly in the evening near summer's end, it is still a good place to chill. The Temple de Debod in itself is a great sight when it is lit up. For the photographers out there,...

Make sure to visit this area just before sunset. You can get some nice vantage points of Madrid. However, the magic begins once the sun begins to set. The temple will light up, and the reflection in the water + the sky = absolutely surreal! A must visit for Madrid!

If you are exploring or touring Madrid it is a place to add to your list. You won't leave amazed but it is a great photo opp and educational. It's free which is why you should go. The surrounding park area is relaxing and also scenic.

This is an authentic ancient Egyptian temple gifted to Madrid for its help in saving numerous monuments from flooding when the new dam was built. What do you do with such a gift? Build a park around it. Interesting history and lovely park, but the temple itself is not that impressive. The USA received a similiar gift and that temple... More

Wouldn't go out of my way to go there but if you're passing worth a look, it's a temple given by the Egyptian people, it's from the 2nd century and it's close to the royal palace, in that area so if you're there you can take a look but you can walk around it in a minute

I was staying just around the corner and just happened upon this temple as didn't even realize it was here. I thought it was great, crazy to see a real Egyptian temple with hieroglyphics inside in Spain. Entry is free and there was only a handful of people there in the morning. I passed by one afternoon and the park... More

This is a free attraction but be prepared to stand in line. They only allow 15 people in at a time, and each visitor can take up to 30 minutes. The line does not take that long, and I don't see a reason why you would take more than 15-20 minutes inside. There are amazing hieroglyphics inside and you can... More
