The Medieval Jewish Chapel of Budapest is yet another valuable site which speaks about the historical trajectory of the Jewish community in Budapest. The archeological excavations have led to the conclusion the nowadays structure used to serve as a place of worship for Jew believers during the Middle Ages, though this is not the original temple.

Indeed, historians and archeologists alike sustain that during the Middle Ages there were plenty of Jewish chapels built throughout Budapest, including the so-called Tancsics utca. However, after a thriving period, Jews underwent long periods of persecution, and their temples were destroyed. The current Medieval Jewish Temple was erected subsequently to an episode of this kind to residential purposes, at the beginning of the 18th century.
