The Templo de Debod is an ancient Egyptian temple (c. 200 BCE) reconstructed in Madrid. The temple was a gift from the Egyptian government to Spain in gratitude for the Spanish UNESCO workers who saved the Abu Simbel temples from the rising waters of the Nile (which were rising due to the construction of the Aswan Dam).

The temple was originally constructed south of Philae in southern Egypt and was a chapel dedicated to the god Amun and the goddess Isis.
