Description

Templo Egipcio trasladado a Madrid con motivo de la construcción de la Presa de Asuán, como regalo del Gobierno Egipcio a España en 1968. Su construcción se remonta al Segundo Milenio a. C. con añadidos de la época Ptolemaica y Romano - Imperial (Siglo I a. C. y II d. C). Está abierto al público en su actual ubicación desde 1972.
La construcción del templo la inició a comienzos del siglo II a. C. el rey de Meroe Adijalamani, quien dedicó una capilla dedicada a los dioses Amón e Isis. La capilla está decorada con relieves. Posteriores reyes de la dinastía ptolemaica construyeron nuevas estancias alrededor del núcleo original. Tras la anexión de Egipto al Imperio Romano, los emperadores Augusto, Tiberio y, tal vez, Adriano, culminaron la construcción y decoración del edificio. Con el cierre de los santuarios de Isis en Filé, en el siglo VI, el templo quedó abandonado.

Desde la explanada del templo de Debod, en el Parque del Oeste, se tienen unas excelentes vistas sobre la Casa de Campo, la catedral de la Almudena y el Palacio Real.

The construction of the temple began in the early second century C. Adijalamani the king of Meroe, who dedicated a chapel dedicated to the gods Amon and Isis. The chapel is decorated with reliefs. Later kings of the Ptolemaic dynasty new rooms built around the original nucleus.After the annexation of Egypt to the Roman Empire, the emperors Augustus, Tiberius, and, perhaps, Adriano completed the construction and decoration of the building.
