The Art Nouveau-style building, standing on the erstwhile marketplace, is decorated with forged ornaments and with glass mosaics from the workshop of Miksa Róth. This is where Amrita Sher Gil, the famous Indian-Hungarian painter and the innovator of Indian painting art, was born in 1913; the apartment of her family was the social salon for enthusiasts of the Indian culture. Another former resident of the building was the composer, Béla Bartók who lived and worked here with his second wife, Ditta Pásztory between 1922 and 1928.
