Musmeah Yeshua Synagogue, Yangon (Rangoon)

4.3
#2 of 30 in Museums in Myanmar
Myanmar’s only synagogue, Musmeah Yeshua Synagogue stands the test of time, beautifully maintained to serve the small Jewish community of the city. Constructed in 1893 and tucked into a busy street, the building is a listed heritage site of the city and a remnant of the country’s colonial era. Once a thriving place of worship, the synagogue now serves fewer than 20 members, but still opens its doors for services and as a museum. Visit in the morning, admiring the Torah reading table, ornate balconies, and delicate white and blue decorations depicting the Star of David motif. A visit to Musmeah Yeshua Synagogue represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Yangon (Rangoon) itinerary maker website to plot your vacation.
