Temple of Debod, Madrid, Spain

This little temple was originally dedicated to Amun and was later dedicated to Isis. Spain helped Egypt to move and save the temples of Abu Simbel which would have been destroyed by the construction of the Aswan Dam. In gratitude, Egypt donated this temple to the people of Spain.
