Templo de Debod is a reconstructed Egyptian temple meaning it was removed from Egypt and rebuilt here.) The park around the temple is also nice and attracts loads of Spaniards walking their dogs and spending time outside. I am not sure that I would have gone far out of my way to see the temple but we were nearby and I wanted to check it out. Beyond the temple (or before it, depending on how you get there,) you can get a really good view of the cathedral and palace in the distance.

Super nice visit! An original Egyptian temple in the middle of Spain is a sight to be seen. That being said we did queued for 1 and a half hour and for us was worth it as we both love Old Egyptian ruins/artefacts it might not be the same for everybody. It was indeed quite small … not more than 15 mins visit.

Good place but nothing special. I try to enter there about 4 times because waiting line always been long. I was disappointed and dissatisfied because waiting time is longer than visit time.

We needed to wait about 3 hours to get inside, as max. 6 people were allowed at the same time. The entry is free, but not worth waiting for so long. It's quite small inside, nice to see, but the best part if outside. For the last years it's no longer been surrounded by water.

We were very disappointed in this site. We waited for well over 1 1/2 hours to visit and on this day the queue was relatively small. It is a free attraction. Only 11 people are allowed in the site at any one time and are allowed 30 minutes in it (why it would take 30 mins I have no idea). Having persisted in waiting we were very disappointed when it was finally our go. It is very average, the film that they show you is only in Spanish (was told I would get the gist of it). The outside of the temple is the best part and at the moment it does not have any water around it. I would not waste your time waiting inline to see this attraction, lots of other things to see in Madrid that are worth queuing for (but this was the longest wait we had in the whole of our 7 days in Madrid).

Egyptian Temple of Debod, built in the 2nd century BC to honor the gods Amun and Isis. In 1968 the Egyptian government sent every brick of this temple to Spain as a thank you for helping to preserve monuments that would have been destroyed by flooding when the Aswan Dam was built. You should know it is free but there is a 10 person max cap with a 30 min time limit. When we were there, there were about 300 people in line so we didn’t wait in line to go in.

Unusual Egyptian temple in the middle of Madrid. If only there was water in it, it would make the outside look great!

The engravings inside are very impressive.

It only takes about 20 minutes to look around once you are in, we waited for 2 hours to get in and if you told me it would take 2 hours to get in I probably wouldn't have waited. The queue goes off to the left and we joined it between bench one and two, they seem to let about 6 people in every 20 minutes.

You cannot buy tickets ahead of time for this attraction. We arrived and it was in the middle of a large public park in Madrid. There was a long line so we decided against waiting since it was very hot out. There also is only one bathroom in the whole park area which was filthy. It looked nice from the outside but definitely not what I was expecting.

We came across this while walking around on Spains national day. It has free entry but there was an hours wait to get in as only groups of 10 or so allowed in at a time. Fascinating once inside. Also, the site on which it stands has historical interest.

Had to queue for 90 minutes, and then in reality it’s 10 minutes to take it all in. Appreciate some people read slow and might take longer (up to 30 mins is the max). They don’t charge because it would be highway robbery. Head to Egypt if you want a fair dinkum education, or London and see what the British stole.
