Musmeah Yeshua Synagogue, Yangon (Rangoon)

(260+ reviews on the web)
History 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.

  • Went to the outside but got There at 330 after it has closed. I was only in Yangon for an afternoon but would love to check it out if i come back. I was told after the fact to email shalom Myanmar to ensure its open. The posted sign says mon-sat 9:30-2:30
  • Historic
