The Rumbach Street synagogue,( _hu. Rumbach utcai zsinagóga is located in Belváros, the inner city of the historical old town of Pest, in the eastern section of Budapest.

The Orthodox synagogue in Rumbach Street was built in 1872 to the design of the Viennese architect Otto Wagner [cite book | last = Krinsky | first = Carol | title = Synagogues of Europe | publisher = Dover Publications | location = New York | year = 1996 | isbn = 0486290786 |pages=108|url=http://books.google.com/books?id=-wUg6rlWS2kC&pg=PA108&sig=sCZWL-siV805k5bNA4VApTbogRE] .

The Moorish Revival synagogue has eight sides and while the interior as of this writing (2008) is badly in need of restoration, the octagonal, balconied, domed synagogue intricately patterened 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.
