Temple of Debod

The Temple of Debod is an ancient Egyptian temple dedicated to goddess Isis. It was moved from Egypt to Madrid (Spain) in 1968. In 1960, the construction of the Aswan High Dam could make disappeared several places with a high archaeological relevance in Nubia. There was an international call to save that heritage and Spain took part in that project. The Egyptian State donated the temple (with about 2,200 years old) to Spain and now it can be visited in Madrid.

I've shown images of that temple before in this blog (made with a digital reflex camera and with a film camera). It is one of my favourite places in Madrid.

I hope you can feel the magic that this place emits.
