Chapu looking very regal in front of Templo de Debod. This is an ancient Egyptian temple that was dismantled and rebuilt in Madrid, Spain.
The shrine was originally erected 15 kilometres south of Aswan in Upper Egypt, very close to the great religious center in Philae dedicated to the goddess Isis.
In 1960, due to the construction of the Aswan High Dam and the consequent threat posed by its reservoir to numerous monuments and archeological sites, UNESCO made an international call to save this rich historical legacy. As a sign of gratitude for the help provided by Spain in saving the Abu Simbel temples, the Egyptian state donated the temple of Debod to Spain in 1968.
It constitutes one of the few works of ancient Egyptian architecture that can be seen outside Egypt.
