Go for the park not the temple
Oct 2021 • Friends
The temple itself in my opinion is nothing to write home about. However the park and the sunsets you can see from there are amazing and i can recommend going for just got

Beautiful park and great place to come and walk around after dinner. The temple is beautiful at night. There are guards around so the area is safe to walk at night. Beware there are several construction going on at this time.

Maybe one of the most beautiful sunsets me and my wife have ever seen. Take your time and enjoy it. What a lovely place.

Dry bricks
Aug 2021
The whole magic of this place was supposed to be in the surrounding water, which was not there! The place is also closed after 7PM so the whole "sunset and nighttime" appeal is gone. It was extremely disappointing and just looked like a bunch of dry bricks. Was not worth the visit, at least the park surrounding it is nice but that's about it.

Moronic security guards and inconsiderate visitors
Jul 2021
Wasted our time queuing for nearly an hour, and then gave up, because we had a hard deadline to be somewhere else. The security guards are lazy morons, they strictly enforce the max 10 people at a time, but then they take their sweet time - minutes, on occasion - letting in the next batch of people once another batch leaves. As for the visitors, once inside the grounds, many groups were totally inconsiderate of the long line behind them - using up 5 minutes or so taking lots of photos of themselves which would have been exactly the same had they exited and taken them a few meters away on the other side of the fence.

Beautiful building
May 2021
An entire completed Egyptian temple donated by the Egyptian government for Spain involvement in the construction of a dam in Egypt. Beautiful, but closed on Mondays. The water around the temple was also missing during our visit.

Missing the water
Mar 2021
I was there twice but not for the sunset. I had higher expectations considering the reviews. Maybe it is because the water pond is empty so there is not the cool effect of the reflection. I hope they will add some water to it. Otherwise it is also possible to go inside the temple but there was a long time and I did not dare to wait.

Nice as part of a walk in the park and lunch nearby. Not worth a trip in itself.
Dec 2020
Rather austere setting. You walk around a ceremonial lake/pond that keeps you at a distance. The view at one end is spectacular. Not worth a trip unless you are walking the park and area and have lunch or drinks nearby in Pintor Rosales.

A must visit at sunset!
Dec 2020
Situated in the sprawling Parque de Oeste, the temple is great for photographs in the late afternoon and has a wonderful lookout onto the Palace, the Almudena Cathedral, and the Basilica of San Francisco el Grande. It is a great place to end a day of site-seeing and there are great little bars along the nearby roads. Although not very well explained, the temple was imported from Egypt in the 1950's and is on the site of a former military fort that played a significant role at the beginning of the Spanish Civil War in 1936.

Beautiful at sunset
Jan 2020
In 1968 the government of Egypt gifted Spain an ancient Egyptian temple as a token of appreciation for Spain’s support in saving the the temples of Abu Simbel when the Aswan dam was built. The Temple of Debod was dismantled in Egypt and reassembled on a low hill overlooking Madrid’s Royal Palace and its surroundings. The views at sunset are breathtaking.
