Synagoge Rumbach street | Flickr

Budapest Rumbach utcai zsinagóga
The synagogue in Rumbach Street was built in 1872 to the design of the Viennese architect Otto Wagner
The Moorish Revival synagogue has eight sides and while the interior is badly in need of restoration, the octagonal, balconied, domed synagogue intricately patterned and painted in Islamic style is exquisitely beautiful. It was built not as an exact replica of, but as an homage to the style of the octagonal, domed Dome of the Rock Muslim shrine in Jerusalem.
Synagoge is al jaren niet meer in gebruik en dreigt in verval te geraken . plafond koepel en de bovenmuren zijn nog redelijk in tact .
