The temple was moved from its original spot in south Egypt, when it was given as a gift to the Spanish government in 1968. The gift was given by the Egyptian government, as a thank you gesture for a Spanish team of architects, who were brought through UNESCO, for preserving temples like the Abu Simbel Temples, that were in danger during the construction of the Aswan Dam and the flooding created in Nassar Lake.
In 1968 the temple was moved to Spain and rebuilt near the Royal Palace of Madrid, not far from Plaza de Espana. This is a small temple with one floor. Many stairs lead to it in the park, for it is located on a hill, from which is a beautiful view. Around the temple are pools, and two of the three original gates. The pools create beautiful reflections, that look really nice in photos.
This is a temple from the 4th century AD, on whose interior walls can be seen ancient Egyptian inscriptions. It was originally dedicated to God Amun. The steps leading to the display of a model where it was located in Egypt, from where it was brought to Spain.
The building began in the ancient times by Kushite king of Meroë. Originally, it held only a small prayer room, and was dedicated as a prayer place for the God Amun. The steps lead to a nice display about Egypt, where the temple was originally located.
In 1968 the temple was moved to Madrid, the capital of Spain, and rebuilt here, exactly like the original.
