Photographer's Note

This is the third and last entry of the Templo Debod series.

It is paradoxical but the eldest building in Madrid was erected in its current location in 1.968. The Templo de Debod is one of the most unlikely structures that you would expect to find in the capital of Spain. The temple is over 2,200 years old and was given to Spain as a sign of gratitude by the Egyptian government in 1968 - Spain having given assistance to Egypt in helping to rescue the temple of Abu Simbel in Namibia. The temple was dedicated to the god Amon.
