Templo de Debod/Debod Temple

    Newer Older

    El Templo de Debod es un templo del antiguo Egipto localizado actualmente en Madrid (España). Está situado al este de la Plaza de España, junto al Paseo del Pintor Rosales (Parque del Oeste), en un alto donde se encontraba el Cuartel de La Montaña (en el que se produjo un sangriento episodio de la Guerra Civil Española). Al ser trasladado a España, se situó de manera que conservase la misma orientación que en su lugar de origen, de Este a Oeste.

    The Temple of Debod is an ancient Egyptian temple which has been rebuilt in Madrid, Spain.

    The temple was built in southern Egypt, very close to the first cataract of the Nile and to the great religious center dedicated to the goddess Isis, in Philae. In the early 2nd century BC, Adijalami, king of the country of Meroë, started its construction by building a small chapel dedicated to the gods Amon and Isis. Afterwards, different kings of the Ptolemaic dynasty added new chambers around the original nucleus. The Roman emperors Augustus, Tiberius, and perhaps Hadrian, completed its construction and decoration.
