Costruita dalla comunità Ebraica Neolog di Pest tra il 1854 e il 1859, è la più grande sinagoga d'Europa. Stile moresco contaminato da elementi bizantini, gotici e romantici, secondo un progetto di Ludwig Förster. Il design degli interni è stato realizzato in parte da Frigyes Feszl. Bombardata pesantemente sia durante l'occupazione nazista che nella battaglia per la liberazione di Budapest, fu restaurata a partire dal 1991. I lavori terminarono nel 1996. L'edificio ospita un Museo Ebraico, un Tempio degli Eroi, un Cimitero e un Parco della Memoria dell'Olocausto.

Le foto sono state scattate intorno a mezzogiorno, col sole allo zenith.
