  • see a bit of Egyptian history in Madrid. Heartwarming to know it was given as a gift to spain as an expression of appreciation  more »
  • We went for a walk in the afternoon and were surprised to learn that it is possible to get inside the temple. Admission is free, but allowed in groups of 20 people. Inside there are inscriptions on the stone. The most beautiful photos of the temple - in the evening when the temple is illuminated

  • In winter, when you go to the same time to go with the gods, have a sense of feeling, very comfortable walk. Walking to the shrine, you can see a beautiful view of Delhi.

  • The line was too long so we didn't go inside. Nothing about the temple written anywhere outside. Googling it was interesting. An interesting place with nice views across the city. No water in the fountains.
  • Very beautiful especially early morning as the sun is rising. The location of it is perfect for views. The temple itself is free entry and can get a long queue after midday. Inside the temple there is three rooms, also there is stairs leading up to another floor. The upper floor and two of the ground floor rooms were closed. Interesting place to visit when in Madrid.
  • The Temple is a short walk from the Royal Palace and could hardly be a greater contrast. It is quite a steep climb but affords a good view of the Palace but is a simple unadorned structure in a nice park. The temple is very similar to the one in the Met museum in New York and was also given by the Egyptian government when the Nile was flooded to make a dam. It was not crowded unlike the Royal Palace and provides an oasis of calm.
  • There was no water when we went. I think that would’ve made it look nice, but perhaps they keep it dry during the hot months? There is not a lot to see inside or outside. Three of the rooms were closed off. Only 30 people are allowed on the premises, so you’ve got to queue in the hot sun. Thankfully we didn’t have to wait too long, but even then, it wasn’t really worth the wait. Each person gets a ticket upon entering the interior, but what for? It’s a waste of paper. It’s free and located in a nice park. There are your two stars.
  • We showed up around 4:15pm in the afternoon, while it was still bright. The grounds are nice. It's quite beautiful, especially if you read a bit about the story.
