About this spot
The Temple of Debod was a gift from Egypt to Spain in 1968 in compensation for the Spanish help after the international appeal made by Unesco to save the temples of Nubia, mainly Abu Simbel, in danger of disappearing due to the construction of the Aswan Dam.
It is about 2200 years old. Its oldest nucleus was perhaps erected under the pharaoh Ptolemy IV Philopator, and later decorated by the Nubian king Adijalamani of Meroe around 200-180 B.C., being dedicated to Amon of Debod and Isis.
