The landmark is an interesting mix of traditional and modern styles that was built between 1912–13 according to the plans of the Löffler brothers. It is part of a complex including a school and communal hall which is the center of the Orthodox community; also one of the most characteristic synagogues of Hungarian architecture. This synagogue is the main building of the Othodox centre functioning like a small village in the heart of the Jewish ghetto. Around the area kosher shops, kosher butcher and even the only mikve (ritual bath) of Budapest can be found.
