The Karaite Synagogue in Jerusalem is the city's oldest Jewish synagogue still in use, located in the Jewish Quarter of the Old City, between Tif’eret Yisrael and HaKaraim Streets.[1][2]

It was founded by the famed Karaite Rabbi Anan ben David in the 8th century during the reign of the Abbasid Caliph Al-Mansur, but was required to be built below ground and without windows so that passersby wouldn't hear the worshipers.[3]
