  • I arrived at noon to Madrid and I went to the evening to the temple, therefore, vi his full evening. Incredible view, where reflected sunlight in the water. Spectacular setting, with music and people sitting on the grass.

  • The park surrounding the temple is certainly worth a visit as the temple itself, but I was very disappointed with the context, seems to be an abandoned place, at least this season. The scenery is very impressive.

  • An Egyptian temple in the heart of Madrid! A must visit during sunset. A very cool spot for pictures. The park itself is not bad you can just set and relax and enjoy some quality time during the craziness of Madrid. I give it 4 stars because its not a must visit but it wasn’t bad.
  • The approach to the temple is dramatic, arousing curiosity to its peak, but as you reach the hilltop, the same level as the Temple, you find its out of limit to tourists. There are security guards every where, making sure none of the visitors step anywhere close to the structure. There’s no entry ticket, still it would have been worth the walk in the heat if we were able to step inside. On top of the hill behind the temple, you can get a lovely view of Madrid, take photos, get an afternoon siesta or just stroll. Playing merrily on his violin you may find the local musician playing “Despachito” or one of the favorites.
