“A must see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

This can be a bit out of the main attractions route, but it is defiantly something you must see. From the outside its just wonderful, and unfortunately I didn't go inside, but saw the breath taking view behind it that spreads into the distance. Don't miss it!

“short, free and interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

We came here as a bit of a time waster as we only had a short time till we got picked up to go to the airport and it was around the corner from our hotel. It is rather lovely, right in the middle of the park, not busy at all, well looked after, free entrance, really interesting and only took about 20/30 mins to have a look around the whole thing. I really enjoyed this.

“A must see in Madrid”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

We visited the temple as recommended by some friends. It is an Ancient Egyptian experience outside of Egypt. It is located amidst a nice green space with beautiful views. We liked it and would recommend it.

“Quick stop only”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014 via mobile

Was a bit underwhelmed, expecting more. It's cool because of the age of the temple, but there is very little of it there. The water around the temple makes for a nicer presentation. In the end, was worth about 15 minutes.

“Only worth it for the view.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

Besides being a bit of a walk from any metro station (about 10 minutes downhill towards the temple) the temple is small and cramped and there is little to see within the building itself. They have a couple of rooms but don’t expand on the history of the temple, and all of the signs are in Spanish (not a bad thing, just not very helpful for non-Spanish-speaking tourists). We’re not even sure about their hours--we checked on the website, went during their hours, the sign outside told us it was closed, but it ended up being open.

The park around the temple is enjoyable and has a good view of Palacio Real and the sunset. It’s also fairly close to the Teleferico, so if you have some time you might as well stop by.
