    The Temple of Deborah is the site of an Egyptian Temple presented to the King of Spain by the Egyptian King at that time. It is located on a hill near the Palace of Barcelona. The temple has a history of more than 4,000 years. It's very beautiful at dusk. It's also the best place to overlook Madrid. Every day, there are many tourists waiting to watch the sunset. It's really beautiful.

    Temple of Debod - Egypt's gift to Spain, a 2,000-year-old building that was moved from Egypt to Madrid and carefully rebuilt, is one of the few cultural relics that can be seen outside Egypt. There are free visits, but we are not in a hurry anyway. We also lined up to enter the temple. It took only 5 minutes to visit the temple for half an hour. In fact, there is really nothing interesting in it. The interior is very small. It has models, video projection and audio-visual equipment. It shows some ancient Egyptian history and culture in the form of multimedia. Compared with the beautiful outside, it is said that Madrid is the best place to watch the sunset. When the sun shines on the remains of the pool, it has a unique taste of traveling to Egypt.

    The Temple of Baud is a typical Egyptian structure, located on a hill near the Madrid Palace. Because of the small area and the large number of visitors, we have to queue up for free visits. But this hillside is Madrid's best place to watch sunsets, which are filled with tourists and citizens. The setting sun and the Madrid Palace form a beautiful landscape.

    The Egyptian temple in Madrid is located on a hillside north of the palace. When the Aswan Dam was built in Egypt, the water level rose and the temple would be flooded, so the temple was moved to Madrid. Because in Egypt, I saw another Philadelphia Temple moved by the Aswan Dam. Although I know that the temple moved to Spain can not be as beautiful as those in Egypt, but because of the great respect for Egyptian civilization, I still have a little expectation of this temple. So we bought ice cream and drinks ready to see the temple. As a result, as a result, both of us could not help but "ah" when we saw the true face of the temple. It was not amazing, but disappointing. This temple is made of several large stones. There is no elegant relief of Egyptian gods and pharaohs, not to mention the Egyptian temple. I really would not regard it as an Egyptian temple. Forget it, those stones in Egypt are miracles that I can never surpass in my heart. In Spain, just look at the sunset on this hillside.

    The Temple of Deborah in Madrid was not on the list of tours, but decided to go temporarily. But there was a surprise. The temple was a little high above sea level, so it had a good view. Many people came to see the sunset. It was really beautiful.

    Debo Temple is an ancient Egyptian Temple rebuilt in Madrid. The temple was built in the 2nd century B.C. and was originally located 15 kilometers south of Aswan, Egypt, for the worship of the goddess Isis. Sixty years ago, because Egypt needed to build the Aswan Dam, many monuments and archaeological sites were in danger. UNESCO calls for the protection of these threatened historical heritage internationally. Eventually, as a thank-you to Spain for its assistance in protecting Abu Simbel's temple, Egypt forced the temple to Spain, which took Spain about six years to accept and complete the reconstruction of the temple in Madrid. The Temple of Deborah is beautiful to watch the sunset. There is a hill behind it that overlooks Madrid. It's absolutely a wonderful place.

    The Temple of Debod is an ancient Egyptian temple in the West Garden of Madrid. It is said that the original site of the temple is 15 kilometers south of Aswan in southern Egypt to commemorate the goddess Isis. It was given to Spain by the Egyptians in return for Spain's help in protecting Abu Simbel and rebuilding the West Park in Madrid. The Temple of Dippo is situated in the West Garden, west of the Spanish Square and north of the Madrid Palace. It's accessible on foot. A ray of early morning sunshine shines on the golden ancient Egyptian temples, with an indescribable sense of mystery.

    The Temple of Debo, a 2,000-year-old building, was moved from Egypt to Madrid and rebuilt meticulously. The temple, formerly on the Nile River, was threatened by the construction of a dam. UNESCO issued a call for endangered cultural relics. Finally, the Egyptian government thanked Spain for its assistance in protecting the temple. The Temple of Deborah, which opened to the public in 1972, is one of the few cultural relics that can be seen outside Egypt. Spain maintains its original orientation, from east to west.

    The Temple of Deborah is near the Spanish Square. It was presented to Spain by the Egyptian government. Because the temple of Deborah is located on a hillside and has a high terrain, it can overlook the Madrid Palace and the Palace Garden. It is said that the most beautiful sunset in Madrid can be enjoyed here. Unfortunately, due to the limited time, we can not see the beautiful sunset.
