Synagogue Quo Ante
The splendor of the picture-perfect Synagogue Quo Ante will enchant you beyond imagination.
Sitting at the town center like a giant fancy wedding cake, Synagogue Quo Ante isTargu Mures’ primary landmark. In 1990, the great synagogue marked the detachment of the “Status Quo” Jews from the Orthodox ones. It has been the center of Jewish tradition and worship ever since. The church celebrates the presence of the Jewish community of Targu Mures. As a ravishing example of eclectic architecture, it remains a popular traveler pilgrimage. Unique touches from Roman architecture to Gothic elements dominate its character. And, a close inspection will reveal that the monument is a study of contrasts.
As you wander the streets of Targu Mures, look for a bright shade of apricot. You will find yourself facing the most spectacular structure in the city. Inside the synagogue, the Jewish community museum offers insight into how the community invested in Targu Mures. But beyond that, the interior will awe you into silence with its graceful details. Luxurious railings separate the women’s gallery from the rest of the space. Also, rose marble columns lend it an ethereal charm. The church is bound to fascinate.
The harmonious juxtaposition of different architectural elements is the reason visitors yearn to see Synagogue Quo Ante. Another motivation is the cultural value it nestles. Today, the church is still serving as a gathering point for the Jewish community of Targu Mures. If you come across a mass, you will get to witness the epic sensations of unity inside. But, keep in mind that you can only observe from the outside.
