Description

The eastern wall of the prayer hall above the Torah ark was decorated with a depiction of the Jerusalem Temple. Only upper part of the mural is preserved, showing open curtains and hanging lamps. 

During the renovation of 1905, the vault of the prayer hall was decorated with Judenstil paintings, including a pair of griffins flanking the semi-circle window in the eastern wall. Each griffin holds a coat of arms.

The synagogue was renovated in 2008-2012 and serves now as a cultural center.
