The oldest written document refers to the battle between King Salamon and House of Árpád prince Géza and László in the village's vicinity, when it was called "zyngota farmstead".
They probably stayed and rested at the local ducal mansion-house.
The present day Lutheran Churches's western wing is what remains of a Catholic Church, built between 1050 and 1150 referring to the existence of a small christian community, that used the chapel not only for worship, but also for refuge and the tower as a look-out, and alerted the neighbourhood by ringing the bell.
The settlement was destroyed during the Mongol invasion.
In 1259, whole settlement was transferred to the Nuns on Margit Island.
Towards the end of the 15th Century Cinkota developed rapidly as a busy roadside settlement beside the important road to Hatvan and further afield.
Many folklore refers to one of the local pub, that's existence goes back to the late 13th C.
During the 160 year Turkish occupation Cinkota was on the Turkish Hungarian border and had to pay tax to both.
In the battles for Buda's reconquest the village was destroyed many times and later abandoned altogether.
In 1699, the new owner of Cinkota, Thomas Beniczky Captain of Vác rebuilt the village and attracted in some slav settlers with low rents and taxes etc.
While the 18th Century built Lutheran Church's western wing is the remains of a Catholic Church, built between 1050 and 1150, the building gothic part is the remains of the mediaeval church.
The nearby Gizella Castle, which served as Queen Gizella's favourite hunter's cottage, recently was restored to its former glory.
While Cinkota experienced continued growth and prosperity after being rebuilt, real progress escalated after 1888 when the local train line was finished and services begin, bringing Cinkota and the Capital within easy reach.
This development still a going concern, but the settlement still retains it's rustic character.
