The Choral Temple (Romanian: Templul Coral) is a synagogue located in Bucharest, Romania. Designed by Enderle and Freiwald and built between 1864 - 1866, it is a very close copy of Vienna's Leopoldstadt-Tempelgasse Great Synagogue, which had been built in 1855–1858. The synagogue was devastated by the far-right Legionaries, but was then restored after World War II, in 1945. The main hall was recently refurbished, and re-opened in 2015. The synagogue is still hosts daily religious services in the small hall, being one of the few active synagogues in the city and in Romania.

A beautifull historical place, very well maintained. There is a guide that will tell you the history of this place, the history of jewish people and the history of some very know religions. This place is guarded and can be visited only at some hours.

Excellent talk about this beautiful temple by a man who grew up here and clearly has a deep love for and knowledge of the building. Costs 10LEI to get in, which is very reasonable, and you can take photos after the tour. Well worth the visit!

You have to take ghe tour of the place. It will set you 10 lei, about 2 euros/$. But is well worth it. Seen as one of the nicest and well kept Sinaqogues in the world.

The ashkenazi synagogue is very very beautiful. The guide had a lot of information and spoke many languages. It is sad that a lot of Jewish historical places are being lost due to the lack of funds and tourism so please, don't think it twice and visit. The price to enter is 10 lei.

I was just visited the temple with my friends from Israel,Is a very nice place to visit is worth the money and the guide is very knowing but....the guards terrible nasty people I'm very disappointed we had a very very bad experience.My opinion they should be fired or sent them to take some classes to learn how to talk to people or how they are supposed to greet people,we are not in communist country anymore.Anyway we were treated as someone who went there to steal or to do something wrong....we were there just to visit.....my friends from Israel were in shock,very very bad experience.
