The Ashkenazi Synagogue was built by Ashkenazi Jews from Austria in 1909 around the Galata Tower and remains in active use to this day. With a dome painted to resemble shining stars and its chandeliers brought from Vienna, the synagogue borrows a number of influences from Islamic motifs and its architecture evokes a typical Ottoman summer palace.

The synagogue continues to preserve Ashkenazi traditions and remains a site of religious ceremony. The synagogue can be visited weekday mornings during prayers and on Saturday mornings for Shabbat prayers.
