Musmeah Yeshua Synagogue, Yangon (Rangoon)

4.3
#2 of 34 in Museums in Myanmar
History Museum · Hidden Gem · Museum
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. Musmeah Yeshua Synagogue is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , online itinerary creator Edition.
