This historic synagogue truly stands out in in the city center of Timisoara. We were lucky enough when passing by that they were doing some restoration work and let us view it for a few minutes from inside. It seems frozen in time since WW2 and glad to see they are taking some efforts to preserve this part of Romanian history.

Built somewhere between 1838 and 1841 the Synagogue of "Fabric" is an architectural piece that deserve a much better faith than its current state of degradation.
Built in Neo-Moorish style , with the majority of its decoration eaten away by the unforgiving teeth of time, it was opened in 1899 in its current form - the original temple has been modified and adjusted based on the designs of the architect Leopold Baumhorn.
Unfortunately, after the War the Jewish community emigrated massively from Timisoara and the building fell into oblivion.
Currently it is still standing - reminding the visitors of its former glory - and can only be seen from the outside.
The entrance is closed and locked and if it will not enter into a refurbishment process I'm afraid that this architectural masterpiece of the city will become a pile of rubble.
Hence , if you are in the area check it out, it is well worth visiting.

It's old and not restored and you have to use some imagination in order to admire it, but you can really see through the current negligence and be impressed by the old glory of the building. When you go there have a look at other buildings in Fabric, they all have the same fate but you can see the beauty.

Unfortunately the synagogue is close, you can admire it only from outside, but is worthy. The entire neighborhood is a place to explore.

The synagogue is located in the heart of Fabric Neighborhood. Despite it is no longer active and the facades looks rather deteriorated, the synagogue retains the genuine features of the combined Moorish-byzantine style of 1900. Inspiring for dedicated people, also suitable for eccentric photography.

Very beautiful architecture typical for the end of the 19th century. Hopefully it will be renovated soon.

The building is impressive from outside. Its architecture seems influenced by the style of Gothic Catholic cathedrals with perhaps Moorish influence. You can guess from outside some painted glass windows.
However the building's structure seems damaged. Hopefully it will be restored as nicely as the one in Oradea.
Historic data about the Jewish community in Timișoara and the Austro-Ungar Hungarian empire would be useful.
