The synagogue was built from 1590 to 1592 thanks to the privilege offered by Emperor Rudolph II. In his time, the unusual three-nave cathedral in the Renaissance style was founded by Mordechaj Maisel, the mayor of the Jewish town of Prague. In 1689, the synagogue was seriously damaged by fire in the ghetto and subsequently underwent several modifications. It was restored and acquired its present-day Neo-Gothic form in 1893-1905.
