  • The site follows magnetism. And you always find something. Light is essential, hence this temple in the morning, afternoon or dusk is different. Das returns to the temple and look at new perspectives. I never tire of visiting it and stop it whenever I have a hole. And you can play sports around.

  • I had the fortune to visit him in the evening and it was really beautiful, a magical place, surrounded by a park very quiet and even romantic.

  • In the middle of this sprawling European capital you have this spectacular Egyptian temple. The outside and the pond is a wonderful sight especially at night. The inside shows a variety of hieroglyphics and sculptures with a lot of informative information.
  • Nice place. Not that much to see but if you go there try to go at the sunset. For me the best way to enjoy this old Egyptian ruins.
  • Definitively worth a visit, especially in the late afternoon. Right before the sunset this place has something special to share. In summer it's crowded by visitors but still you can have some.relax in the surrounding gardens. There are many small shops in the neighbourhood which are just good to by some cheap and cool drinks to help you relax in the gardens.
  • I saw reviews that this is a great place for seeing the sunset. I'm guessing that it'll be somewhat crowded by tourists as I read this in multiple tour guides. I went in the dawn (not too bad since sunrise is 7:15 today). It was beautiful and serene with only a few early joggers around. It's a bit out of the way so I suggest going for a morning jog/stroll and checking this off. The views are beautiful so it is worth it.
  • The temple, which is supposed to be beautiful, is very disappointing to visit at mid day during the hot season. It is located at a less-central and less beautiful area of Madrid, and is usually described as very beautiful and romantic location to visit during sunset.
