The shrines at graves of wonder rabbis of the hasidic movement in Hungary have not been studied so far by the researchers of Hungarian ethnology of religion. Their characteristics and the community's expectations connected to them are fairly diverse. The most significant graves are still popular places of pilgrimage. They have become sacred places as a result of the influence of the people who are buried there. Prayers and petitions said atthat place are considered more effective. The buildings were mainly built to protect the tombs. Their name originates from the Hebrew word for "tent". Their artistic elaboration, structure and form are various: small houses, huts with single-sloped roof or a marble chest forming a part of the tomb. They are made of different materials: brick, stone, corrugated asbestos, wood, tin, concrete fence. It is their function that is the most important and not the normative categories of aesthetics, artistic value or the style of the era. They are significant memorials of orthodox Jews emigrated from Hungary. Most of them have been renovated. There are many tombs beside which you can find memorial tablets, candle holders, prayer books or texts of prayers and boxes for notes of requests. The graves appear on photos of pilgrims and in articles in foreign orthodox newspapers.
